Pretty paper, rather little value,
This review is from: Classical Painting Atelier: A Contemporary Guide to Traditional Studio Practice (Hardcover)
Classical Painting Atelier is almost useful. Unfortunately, far too little space is devoted to real information on practical methods and techniques. Aristides primary focus is in self promotion repeating again and again that the information she mentions in passing here is discussed more fully in some other of her books.
Some pretty reproductions of other artists' works who may or may not have ever set foot in her classes. Interestingly her own paintings, though pleasant enough are among the weakest examples shown.
Unimpressive didactics, uninspiring, with thankfully brief allusions to studio life, limited value to a student of painting...you're better off watching someone on You Tube.
