Vivian Wong shares her love of colored pencils and explains that one way "baby artists" improve their work is by copying what they see. Love Colored Pencils is designed to enable exactly this.

Look over Vivian's shoulder as she demonstrates all the techniques you need to make luscious drawings in the wonderful, soft, blendable medium of colored pencil. On one side of each spread, Vivian demonstrates a technique or she colors in a subject, and on the opposite page or the next spread, you are encouraged to try it yourself, drawing directly in the book. Exercises throughout offer fun ways to explore drawing while being inspired by Vivian Wong's popular and colorful drawing style.

Vivian will teach you about:

  • Holding your pencil
  • Pencil pressure
  • Hatching and crosshatching
  • Stippling
  • Scribbling
  • Blending
  • Color mixing
  • Creating tones with color
  • How to color facial features
  • And more!

This is a book for all levels of artists who want to explore this versatile and fun medium with a colorful and talented artist, baby step by baby step. With Vivian by your side, you can't go wrong!
