There were two reasons I wanted to review Daily Painting.
1. It's beautiful, and the dominant colors are turquoise and red. I decorate with books, and I love that color combination, so.... ;)
2. My daughter loves art, she's very talented, and she's teaching herself new techniques. I knew she would enjoy it.
I wasn't disappointed at all in the appearance of this book. It's beautiful! I was also impressed at the manner in which the tips and instructions are simply and practically presented. This book is seriously packed with helpful information. I'm not a painter, I'm a (very amateur wannabe) photographer, but I found the suggestions helpful.
This is an enjoyable read, and I feel confident that my daughter can learn much from Daily Painting. I love the concept of painting small and often, (or in my case, photographing small and often) and I look forward to seeing what my daughter learns from this book.
