This is a good, standard guide for someone who wants to move a little beyond colouring in the lines. There is one excellent tutorial in this book on using watercolour pencils (it spans about four pages of the book). There are also a few finished pieces of coloured pencil artwork that will definitely inspire the coloured pencil want-to-be-artist. The verdict? Definitely worth taking out the library if you are pursuing coloured pencil artwork, but not necessarily worth owning.
Ages: 8 or 10 and up
