Lessons in Classical Painting: Essential techniques from inside the atelier by Juliette Aristides

This book is outside the realm of my expertise, but it appears to be a thorough guide to the elements of painting in the classical style. Throughout the book, concepts are tied to specific examples, and the print quality is excellent so it’s a treat to flip through just for the sake of admiring the art. Each chapter is supplemented with several step-by-step lessons. The book assumes that you know how to paint already but are looking to develop your skills in this specific genre of painting.
