The books are extremely well written - witty, in-depth, personable, and thorough, with excellent examples throughout. There is also a fair bit of what I’d call philosophical writing about creating artwork, which helps to connect technique to the wider questions of making art. Ms. Aristides also discusses a lot of common problems and challenges that beginning artists encounter, and her ideas are very helpful. There’s a reason this book and Lessons in Classical Painting: Essential Techniques from Inside the Atelier are so highly reviewed!
Have not read the book but flipped through, looks like what it promises, techniques with examples by Juliette - lovely to look at - hope to find a few jewels of knowledge; as I am self taught / amateur. Don't have the luxury of art school, so I can't speak to the professional quality of the book but it is within the standards of other good art books. (Seth Jacobs, Anthony Ryder....etc) I have spent good money on bad art books, So I am please with my purchase.
with the kindle edition (I'm reading this on an Ipad) are amazing. You can tell a lot of effort has been put into making this book.
The instructions are very clear and the author really knows how to get an idea across in a very simple way. Of all the books I've bought that teaches how to draw, this is my favourite!
