Colored Pencil Portraits Step by Step by Ann Kullberg – Hardcover, 128 pages (March 1999) North Light Books (check out Ann's online colored pencil & portrait newsletter) Best Seller

From Library Journal: Kullberg is a born artist, self-taught and highly accomplished. In her first book, she proves to be a born teacher as well. She thoroughly and engagingly explores the details of the tools and techniques necessary for every element of creating portraits.

With her fresh enthusiasm, Kullberg makes the work a pleasure.

In choosing between the two, Kullberg's personal approach edges out Hammond.
