    I bought this book because I liked a book on classical drawing Classical Drawing Atelier A complete course in traditional studio practice by the same author The book on drawing was actually very informative not only did it cover theory of drawing and provide detailed examples for the various concepts techniques, but it also had videos in which the author herself and other artists demonstrated those techniques I was hoping something similar here, but no such luck Don t get me wrong, Ju I bought this book because I liked a book on classical drawing Classical Drawing Atelier A complete course in traditional studio practice by the same author The book on drawing was actually very informative not only did it cover theory of drawing and provide detailed examples for the various concepts techniques, but it also had videos in which the author herself and other artists demonstrated those techniques I was hoping something similar here, but no such luck Don t get me wrong, Juliette is not only a very good artist, but she s also a very good teacher She actually belongs to the rare breed of artists who actually know how they do what they do as opposed to the majority of other artists who just seem to do it and hence don t know how to teach their techniques very well In this book, she has very very good sections on composition and reasonably informative sections in color harmony But beyond that its just a lot of almost useless information if you are looking for a solid book on painting There is some art history in there, there are paintings by various artists from past and present, there are paragraphs upon paragraphs on why the atelier teaching practices work.but not a lot of actually usable information on how to go about painting Can t blame her though, because the book IS indeed on the drawing practices followed in ateliers and why they re supposed to be better if that s what you were going for, then this is the book for you Now let me give some concrete examples of what I m talking about One of the things that comes up early in books on painting is the importance of doing warm and cool studies Cool neutrals recede and warm ones come forward that means you can create convincing form in your painting simply by learning the application of this concept Once you have it figured out, you can replace the neutrals with whatever colors you like andbang you have a painting Needless to say, the importance of this concept can t be overstated But what does Juliette teach you about it Well, pretty much what I said about it here plus a finished painting where someone applied Yes, that s it No step by step demonstration, no information on how to actually apply the colors, nothing that you can actually refer to when you actually get down to it But let s take a step back what does Juliette teach about exactly how to learn to paint Well, she tells you that using colors can be difficult and trying to do so in a new medium paint vs graphit charcoal would be evenso, so just start with monochromatic paintings first.and.well that s about it Fast forward to portrait figure painting which happens to my favorite subject all that you re gonna get are a bunch of portraits done by various artists and how Juliette feels about them That s it So, you can see what I meant by a lack of any concrete information on the process techniques of painting itself This is not an isolated case though, majority of books out there suffer from the same problem Artists seem to know how to teach drawing, but not painting.probably because they learned to paint mostly by trial and error themselves Aside from that, the whole thing about how they do it in ateliers and why that s the best way to do gets old after a while I mean I understand that the book is about atelier methods, but I don t necessarily believe that how they used to do things hundreds of years ago and thousands of miles away actually is the best way It might be, it might not be But they did the best they could back then with the resources they hadand we should do the same instead of trying pretty hard to justify their methods for today s use But the book is about atelier practices so no complaints Bottom line, if you want a book on how to paint, there are a lot of better books out there But if you want a book on atelier s practices, tidbits on art history, some good info on composition, and a few pointers on painting, then go for it

    Classical Painting Ateliermight be the best book about painting I ve ever seen It combines art history, technique, how to, and inspiration, and manages to do all of those things extremely well The text offers fairly in depth descriptions and instruction of classical traditional approaches and techniques, but is very readable and interesting, which isn t always true for a book like this But even if you didn t read the text, every page has beautiful prints of paintings old masters sideClassical Painting Ateliermight be the best book about painting I ve ever seen It combines art history, technique, how to, and inspiration, and manages to do all of those things extremely well The text offers fairly in depth descriptions and instruction of classical traditional approaches and techniques, but is very readable and interesting, which isn t always true for a book like this But even if you didn t read the text, every page has beautiful prints of paintings old masters side by side with present day painters So just looking at the pictures makes my fingers itch to pick up a brush Another excellent feature is the step by step lessons on basic painting exercises interspersed between chapters.Highly recommended for any artist, painter, art historian, or anyone interested in traditional classical art

    Painting over the centuries has evolved from a craft using ground minerals with copying tools to a secretive art of methods on canvas through to today where there are many splinters and schools of thought using a wealth of digital and manual tools There were very few good books describing painting methods until today s Atelier movement Ateliers provide 1 on 1 teaching much like that provided in historic guilds the MOOCs of the art scene Aristides describes how to paint with oil traditi Painting over the centuries has evolved from a craft using ground minerals with copying tools to a secretive art of methods on canvas through to today where there are many splinters and schools of thought using a wealth of digital and manual tools There were very few good books describing painting methods until today s Atelier movement Ateliers provide 1 on 1 teaching much like that provided in historic guilds the MOOCs of the art scene Aristides describes how to paint with oil traditionally, in detail It may be overly wordy, in this age of videos I could only judge this when I read the color chapter chapter 4 , where every nuance was described things some people learn just by smushing paint and holding it up to the subject This is so different from the last generation of painting where the method of painting was less verbal, and advancement was tied to universities After I understood this book s approach I loved the historic examples used to explain hue, value, and pre painting sketching Aristides is very good when comparing the contemporary alla prima approach to painting with thehistoric Flemish and Venetian methods Aristides is a painting instructor based in Seattle
