Les explications théoriques sont claires, les exercices efficaces et la présentation agréable, sans doute plus rigoureux que son précédent ouvrage.

I am a portraitist who paints using renaissance technical traditions, and my belief is that this book offers a effective approach to the study and practice of drawing that seems to be a fulfillment of what was forseen as needed by gifted authors from the late 19th and early 20th century, like John Vanderpoel and Harold Speed. These authors wrote at a time when the extremely linear art instruction as practiced by the European academies was under concerted attack and dismantling, I think they foresaw the need for instruction of the type and scope offered here.
After first stumbling upon 'Classical Drawing Atelier', I've been pleased to add both 'Classical painting Atelier', as well as this newest volume, 'Lessons in Classical Drawing', to my library as soon as I looked them over. Though I've never met the author, I can't help but respect both her writing and her artwork. I suspect that anyone who appreciates art and especially those of you who are interested in the highest craft practiced in the visual arts will cherish her books as well.
Plus, if you are interested in really learning about representing and interpreting visual phenomenon (read; learning the discipline of drawing in it's highest, fullest forms), and you can't, for whatever reason, participate at a quality atelier, this is a very good place to begin as well as augment your studies.
a. beautiful reproductions and well chosen examples of master drawings both from old masters and contemporary artists.
b. insightful commentary. Although this is about technique - Aristides never loses sight of the 'big picture' (which by the way is an essential technique!)
c. More in-depth surveys' of drawing techniques including master copying, rythmn and line.
There is no substitute for an atelier and working with a master, but this book is as close as it comes.
In her book "the creative habit" Twyla Tharp recounts a story of a master ballerina coming to a basic dance class and going through the 'basics' at the barre. She goes on to say that masters always practice and never lose site of the fundamentals. For that reason alone all artists, beginners and especially advanced artists, should have this on their bookshelves.
There are a LOT of drawing books out there, but this is one of the best published in recent years.
