Art Books & More

Are you interested in learning the colored pencil techniques? Is oil painting your passion? Here are several drawing instruction books that teach students how to draw in graphite, colored pencil and more! While some art books have step-by-step painting demonstrations, most of the information covers the basics of realist drawing, which are the art fundamentals to drawing almost anything. On the pages of these art instruction books you’ll understand how to see and draw shapes correctly, how to improve your drawing by working on the composition, proportions and scale, how to pick colors, and what papers and colored pencils give you the best results possible. In addition to this information the art books feature step-by-step drawings completed in various media, including colored pencil, graphite and even soft pastels.

  • Depending on your choice of the art book offered here, you’ll find the step by step tutorials covering the following subjects: how to draw a bird, how to draw a flower, how to draw a cat, how to draw a person, how to draw objects in perspective, and many other drawing tutorials.
  • Travel books capture the architecture, landscape, people, and lifestyle of the country in beautiful pictures and words. They serve as the visual travel guides to the final destination.
  • The advantage of buying a digital file rather than a Kindle book is that you can open and see large images on your computer screen. Also, if you have black-and-white kindle, it makes no sense buying the art book that explains how to draw in color.
  • Every book sells as a digital download that you can save to your computer, and open the file whenever you’re ready to work on your art in colored pencil or paint!
  • This price of the soft cover books includes FREE shipping within the U.S. only! If you live in Europe or any other country, please order on Amazon in your country. If you live outside the US and still wish to order the book from me, an additional $20 shipping surcharge applies.
  • Are you ready to do it? Let’s get started!

Step by Step Drawing Tutorials

 

 

One of the main reasons I make drawing tutorials and painting demonstrations now is that students can focus on studying one drawing concept at a time. Step-by-step tutorials allow artists to see how to draw or paint a single subject from start to finish. Every step-by-step demonstration includes the art supplies list and images to complete the exercise.

  • The demonstration comes as a digital pdf file that you can save to your computer to work from at any time! A few demonstrations have a video component that’s available for download separately.
  • I hope my demonstrations help you create better art. Feel free to share your progress on my Facebook business page!

Have fun drawing, guys!

Colored Pencil Portrait Drawing

I love to draw in colored pencil! In the following galleries you’ll see some of my pencil drawings that are inspired by moving personalities. In my surreal colored pencil portraits I enjoy capturing the character of each person through expressive eyes. I often add landscapes and symbols around the portrait to create a story. I plan out the drawings around a specific color scheme, and know how it’s going to look like finished before I even start. The realistic colored pencil drawings become my notes on human condition.

My colored pencil artwork has been featured in many publications, including several issues of Leisure Painter, Colored Pencil Student, Colored Pencil magazine, and Artists & Illustrators magazines, Women Artists 2004 and 2013 calendars, in two CP treasures books, Draw portraits in colored pencil book, Flowers in art, Strokes of Genius 8 & Strokes of Genius 9 art books, as well as in Dick Blick’s national ad campaigns.

Step-by-step drawing:

I usually draw on colored paper using professional, lightfast colored pencils. In the following images you can see the drawing sequence. I always begin drawing in one dominant color, and then slowly add the additional colors one by one. This way I have a full control over my values and color.
