Book Review: Colored Pencil Painting Portraits by Alyona Nickelsen

Every once in a while an art instruction book comes along that impresses me to no end while inspiring me to be creative and scaring me because the challenge is so big. Colored Pencil Painting Portraits by Alyona Nickelsen is one of those books.

Just looking at the cover, you can tell that this title is geared toward the experienced artist. The meticulous attention to detail and realistic shading and color are breathtaking. Every page is a amazing.

There is a lot of wonderful information inside these pages for the professional artist. Beginners may want to find something a little more basic.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
