Excellent This thought provoking and inspirational book contains invaluable methods for painting in oils. I have implemented these into my work and have been delighted with the results. The lessons are by example, the instruction informative whilst keeping discussion to the essentials. There is plenty of illustration images with notes that link into the main text. Recommend.

[Note: This book was provided free of charge by Blogging For Books/Waton-Guptil Publications in exchange for an honest review.]Admittedly, I am not the ideal audience for this book in at least one major respect, for although I greatly enjoy art and art history and art criticism [1], my own skills in visual media like painting are nearly non-existent. That said, this book is a fantastic piece of educational writing from an artist for those who wish to practice the sort of art education that comes [...]

"Lessons in Classical Painting" contained foundational lessons for painting "in the atelier style." This isn't for absolute beginners since the author assumed you have done some painting and doesn't cover equipment basics. Rather, it's a series of lessons that build on each other to improve your painting.The author talked about a topic then provided a lesson or two to help you learn and apply that principle. She'd tell you the goal of the lesson and how to choose a subject rather than assume you [...]

Good basic instruction here in increments that if followed will help just about anyone improve their skills.

Talk about lighting and shadows all you want, but a picture gives me that aha moment where all the words come to mak [...]

One thing you may not know about me is that I love to paint. When I was younger I used to draw all the time. I would pick up a paintbrush and would feel too intimidated to actually paint anything. Just in the last few years I have learned to really love painting. I'd say it's a pretty good tie to reading!When I saw this book on the list of choices to review I knew it was the one for me. I have enjoyed leaning new techniques and practicing the different paintings in the book. This book taught me [...]

This book is my new go to studio book for sure! I love the eloquent writing of the style of the author. Brilliant artworks sprawl throughout the pages along with quotes to inspire and encourage. The author, Juliette Aristides, gives the reading several different projects to go about painting throughout the book, each one building on the last. Learning classical techniques of underpainting through the use of color and master studies. This book should be in every single studio! I received this boo [...]
