About the Book



"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 15 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, color, and composition, demonstrating how these key subjects can be applied by all painters"--

Review Quotes




"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
