Daily painting by Carol Marine is an instructional art book. She wants everyone to enjoy their painting. I chose this book because my daughter loves art and is always looking for things to help her learn more. The author of this book really seems to want to reach out an help artists whether they are just beginning or have painted for years. Her book is broken into different sections she explains things such as value, composition, proportion and many more. She also discusses the rule of thirds. I found this interesting because I’ve never thought about in the form of doing painting I have learned to use this concept in my photography. It was a duh moment for me.
The author tries to help those who may be suffering from painters block due to painting becoming more of a job than a joy. She is teaching the concept to paint small and paint daily choosing art that can be finished quickly. She has listed materials that she uses and gives a lot of tips and techniques throughout the book. The illustrations are gorgeous and are really well done.
My daughter is really enjoying this book so I would definitely recommend it to those who paint or want to learn. I received this book at no charge from www.bloggingforbooks.com in exchange for an honest review. You can purchase this book here.
