Dramatic Portraits in Colored Pencil
an ebook by Nicole Caulfield

I've written an ebook that describes the process that I use to create my portraits in colored pencil on Fisher 400 paper. I am sharing this with you free of charge. Just click the link to the left to open the .pdf file. A little warning it is unedited so you will have to bear with any typos or weird wording. :-) I also did not quite finish the very end... the images are there on the steps but not the words. I think I will get that done someday. I hope the book proves helpful!

A very useful book full of clear explanations and information that I will come back to. I may add more Polychrome pencils and try this, different than I have used, sanded paper.

Thank you!

Very interesting book indeed ! I really think it is though I do not draw portraits. that's why I wanted to ask: for your still lives, do you proceed the same way ( monochrome under painting + glaze colors ) ? I think it is not that easy since you cannot limit your first pallet to 5 tones and the paper and brand of pencils you use are different as well..
Anyway, thanks again for sharing these precious information!
