I really am a big fan of art. If you haven’t visited the ARTNET pages on the Cool Sites link I highly reccomend it. I also really enjoy doing my own art and painting. You can go and get some great classes, but I prefer to read books on art and do some trial and error stuff.

I love the PRISMA COLOR Color pencils

I also like this book to teach technique on color pencil works. I have hundreds of colored pencils and this book is the MOST reccomended on this form of art.
