Borgeson, author of several books on the subject, is recognized as having helped renew interest in colored pencil as a fine medium. This volume is a revision of her earlier Colored Pencil Fast Techniques (Watston-Guptill, 1988). It fits well in the "Basic Techniques" series, with individual sections on tools, drawing surfaces, etc., giving way to discussions of sophisticated techniques of layering, burnishing, and lifting color. An excellent chapter of studio tips is added. Warr's work strives to be comprehensive but fails for lack of space, and its scattershot style will confuse the beginner for whom it was written. For the novice, Jenny Rodwell's Coloured Pencil Drawing (Studio Vista, 1994) is much more useful. Borgeson's book is recommended for the serious student and will do well in collections that don't already contain her earlier works.
