It would seem, looking at the lifelike textures in this book, that the techniques used to create them are complicated. But they're really very easy. The simple "secret" is making the most of colored pencil's distinctive translucent properties with techniques such as layering, burnishing and underpainting.
Illustrated step-by-step demonstrations detail the methods and specific colors you can use to create a rich variety of textures: Flowers - rose, cineraria, tulip, orchid, hyacinth, marigold; Fruits & Vegetables - orange, grape, strawberry, banana, peach, tomato, avocado, onion, potato, Indian corn; Leaves & Wood - maple leaf, philodendron leaf, croton leaf, kale leaf, fir, palm, fern, cactus, bark, unfinished and finished wood, weathered wood; Earth & Water - sand, gravel, soil, rock, calm water, rough water, rapid water, water drop, shell; Hair & Skin - people of various ages and ethnic backgrounds; Animals - fur, hide, scales, feathers; and Man-made Textures - glass, porcelain, metal, rust, paper, balloon, cloth, brick, wicker.
