Description

Product Description

A companion volume to Lessons in Classical Drawing and an atelier in book form, Lessons in Classical Painting breaks down the foundational skills and techniques of painting in a format that is accessible and manageable for all readers.

With the same direct, easy-to-follow approach of Juliette Aristides''s previous books,  Lessons in Classical Painting presents aspiring artists with the fundamental skills and tools needed to master painting in the atelier style. With more than 25 years of experience in ateliers and as an art instructor, Aristides pairs personal examples and insights with theory, assignments and demonstrations for readers, discussions of technical issues, and inspirational quotes. After taking a bird''s eye look at painting as a whole, Aristides breaks down painting into big picture topics like grisaille, temperature, and color, demonstrating how these key subjects can be applied by all painters.

Review

“I have met many thousands of artists over the last fifty years of painting and thirty-five years of making paint. Very rarely do I meet someone who is as good at writing as she is at her visual art. Juliette Aristides is one such person—both a terrific writer and great artist.”
Robert Gamblin, founder of Gamblin Artist Colors

“There are few who know classical painting like Juliette Aristides. This book is the next best thing to studying with her in person.”
B. Eric Rhoads, publisher of Fine Art Connoisseur and PleinAir magazines

This is by far the most helpful book on painting I have ever read. First of all, the writing is philosophical, beautiful, and inspiring. Secondly, the technical information, especially on color mixing and theory, is invaluable. Although it requires more thought, patience, and practice, the classical approach to painting rewards the artist with the satisfaction of understanding.

This is by far one of the most useful books on the underpainting technique. I saw it after I had read her book on Drawing and it used my skills by half at least. she writes well and actually gives you practical lessons to achieve , if you are not serious about painting for thousands a week then do not buy this book, give it to a student who is willing to put in the time to find his chops.

This is a very detailed and well illustrated high quality book for the artist who wants to master traditional representational oil painting. I used to teach oil painting at the college level and would use this as a textbook. The lessons are thoughtful and move progressively from value to color study. I highly recommend this book to any painter at any level of development. I consider myself a professional, but everyone has more to learn.

This is an amazing book on painting. It teaches you how to see as a painter, and focuses on overall questions of composition, value, form, etc. rather the step-by-step approach offered in many other books. I''d much rather see something that tries to impart universal approaches to visual art than a how-to on painting every subject matter imaginable. If you''re interested in painting as an art, buy this book.

I had wished I could have had this kind of classical training when I was just out of school. . . Thank you, Juliette Aristides. . . Soon I''ll have all four books by this talented artist and teacher. . . . Her books (or anyone else''s, for that matter) cannot take the place of actual disciplined atelier training but what Juliette Aristides has provided with her books. . . Well, let''s just say, she''s given me a road map to getting where I hope to be eventually. . .

Wonderful book. Highly recommended.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 9, 2020
A beautifully written and well produced book with wonderful paintings reproduced in it. The guidelines are clear, and for me, really took the fear out of trying to produce oil paintings again after years of not painting.
