Jul 28, Manoj rated it liked it. 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.
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.
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 cllassical, there are paintings by various artists from past and aatelier, there are paragraphs upon paragraphs on why the atelier teaching practices work 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 classsical warm ones come forward – classicwl means you can create convincing form in your painting simply by learning the application of this concept. Once julidtte have it figured out, you can replace the neutrals with whatever colors you like and 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.
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. This is not an isolated case though, majority of julietre out there suffer from the same problem. Artists seem to know how to teach drawing, but not painting Aside from that, the whole thing about how-they-do-it-in-ateliers and why that’s the best way to do gets raistides 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 had 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 aistides atelier’s practices, tidbits on art history, some good info on composition, and a few pointers on painting, then go for it.
Jun 27, Lydia rated it it was amazing. 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 atellier few adistides 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.
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 4where every nuance was described — things juljette 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 the more historic Flemish and Venetian methods. Aristides is a painting instructor based in Seattle. Jan 11, Katharine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Classical Painting Atelier might 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.

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 aetlier itch to pick up a brush. Another excellent feature is the step-by-step classlcal on basic painting exercises interspersed between chapters.

Aug 27, Charice Shellahamer rated it really liked it. Dec 30, Brogan rated it it was amazing. This is the best book on technique available. Dec 07, Dinah Steveni rated it it was amazing.
This one should be in any serious oil painter’s reference collection. This book is easily a favourite, coming as it does from the reaction to the impressionist and modernist developments in the history of art.
The author’s work returns to the classical foundations of drawing and painting of antiquity, with the boost they got from the Renascence period. This is what I should like to have studied, if I had ever gone to art school – clear and well-documented lessons in the science of drawing and painting, in the traditions of centuries of professionals.
As it is, it This book is easily a favourite, coming as it does from the reaction to the impressionist and modernist developments in the history of art.
As it is, it is a good thing to not have gone to art school and to be learning the basics from such books as this.

An excellent, easy read, with lots of explanation and illustration. Sep 05, claudia rated it liked it Shelves: This book is quite okay.
When you read this book you find that you read more in dept about the classical techniques and period.
The way they translated there views into the art they represented at that time. For example da Vinci, Michelangelo etc. There are two books in the serie. Feb 03, Vincent Woodruff rated it it was amazing. The best book on Classical Atilier styles of Painting. It combines history and philosophical reasoning behind why this method is superior. I’m just a little peeved that the description for this book includes a reference to Pollock?
Anyone who reads this will be far superior a craftsman that Pollack or Picaso ever were. View all 3 comments. Nov 04, RJW rated it really liked it. A very nice and comprehensive overview of the atelier system in it’s relationship to painting. If one is thinking of atelier study, it would be good to read. If one likes art, it would be interesting. If one is an artist, you can glean some great insight from the great artwork and insightful written commentary.
