Lessons in Classical Painting: Essential Techniques from Inside the Atelier
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 may be accessible and manageable for all readers.
With the similar direct, simple-to-follow approach of Juliette Aristides’s previous books, Lessons in Classical Painting presents aspiring artists with the elemental skills and tools had to master painting within the atelier style. With more than 25 years of enjoy 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 take a look at painting as a complete, Aristides breaks down painting into big picture topics like grisaille, temperature, and color, demonstrating how these key subjects may also be applied by all painters.
