    In the book The Daily Book of Art it shows you three hundred and sixty five readings that teach, inspire and entertain people about the different types of art The first few pages of the book informs you about all the authors of the book and their different views on the art community The book has a total of eight authors, and each other talks about different topics of art The elements of art is the basic thing to learn about art first There are many elements of art in the art community but this book only covers seven of them The first one they talk about is line which is a pathway, either visible or implied The second one is shape which is the two dimensional area taken up by an object Form is the element that refers to the illusion of a three dimensional object on a 2 d surface Value is the lightness or darkness of a color or of black Texture refers to the way people discern the feeling of an object s surface Color is made up of three properties, hue, value, and intensity The last element they cover in this book is space, space is the area within the borders of your work, it is what feels length, width, and perceived depth of a work of art.The next basic thing the books talks about art is color Color plays a big role in the decision an artist makes because the way you lay out your colors is what s gonna attract the people There are six different types of colors that differ from the others The first one is primary colors Primary colors can not be mixed or formed with any other combination of colors An example of primary colors would be red, yellow, and blue Secondary colors are formed by mixing the primary colors Examples of these would yellow and red to make green or red and blue to make purple Intermediate colors are a combination of both primary and secondary colors Yellow orange or red violet are examples of intermediate colors Complementary colors are colors that are directly opposite of each other in the color wheel like purple and yellow or green and red Monochromatic colors are colors that are a shade or tint or variation of a color Analogous colors are colors located close together on a color wheel The other topics the book covers about art is how art has changed over the years from caveman paintings to paintings in high class museums It also covers the different art movements in history and how each society in time has influenced different art.

    After 70 days , I decided that taking a year to finish wasn t for me It wasn t bad, but prospective readers need to understand that this is a collection of 365 snapshots, condensed and simplified I found the authors rather culturally or hemispherically myopic pretty much focused entirely on Western art The leading questions were juvenile What do you think is going through Suzon s mind and the generalizations trite tapping into what unites us all a fascination with the mysteries of the subconscious not me, but then that s me The seven or so authors rotated ten sections throughout the year 1 Philosophy of Art mostly nonsense 2 Art Through the Ages history soundbites, style periods 3 Profiles in Art biosno Asian, and only one woman 4 A Picture is Worth 1000 200 Words Expanded museum placard info 5 Art From the Inside Out Collections, museums, exhibitions 6 Art From Around the World sound bites of regional art forms 7 Unexpected Art Forms odd stuff, some cool, some a reachsand, crop circles, snow 8 Artistic Oddities odd stuff, but mostly events thefts, pop art 9 Step by Step Instructions short and simple drawings 10 Art 101 techniques, tools, media, some history This isn t bad, just very simple and narrow in scope.

    A fun, quick read More of a reference book, it covers the basics of multiple topics within the world of art Use it as a launching pad into a in depth study of the various topics covered.

  7. says:

    Most days the subject is quite interesting and not things I would have thought, but which agree with my assessments Language is a little to flowery.

  8. says:

  9. says:
