The new colored pencil book

Hi there, today I would like to talk about the book called The New Colored Pencil by Kristy Ann Kutch.  I love using watercolor pencils when making my ATC's, art journaling and scrapping and dream of someday being able to produce the gorgeous art that Kristy does in this book.
Kristy talks about applying and lifting colored pencils, creating and enhancing textures with colored  pencils, compatible surfaces for waxy colored pencils (I would love to try this!!), getting the most out of color, combining color drawing media and much, much more.  The art in this book is gorgeous and she has many examples on how to create the different effects that she shows.  I would have never believed what could be accomplished using pencils, it's awe inspiring!

Here is a clip of her on Youtube showing her technique of sketching pine trees

and if you go here you will see how a simple line drawing using an HB pencil becomes a  gorgeous
8 x 10 work of art!

This is one of my favorite colored pencil works of Kristy's:
Doesn't that make you want to bust out your pencils and make some art??  Kristy Kutch's book The New Colored Pencil (Watson-Guptill Publications) is available for sale through,,,, Cheap Joe's Art Stuff -, and Dick Blick Art Materials - The book is also available at stores such as Hobby Lobby and Michaels Arts and Crafts.

This book was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for my review and I appreciated being given the opportunity as well as this fabulous book!
