A good book A few pages are dull but there are some really great uotes and a terrific choice of alternative projects This is not a book you finish reading It's chock full of inspiring and informing daily readings and beautiful illustrations Even though my personal bookshelf space has been crammed full for years I do not regret adding this book to my collection Finally 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 artThe 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 uestions 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 meThe seven or so authors rotated ten sections throughout the year1 Philosophy of Art mostly nonsense2 Art Through the Ages history soundbites style periods3 Profiles in Art biosno Asian and only one woman4 A Picture is Worth 1000 200 Words Expanded museum placard info5 Art From the Inside Out Collections museums exhibitions6 Art From Around the World sound bites of regional art forms7 Unexpected Art Forms odd stuff some cool some a reachsand crop circles snow8 Artistic Oddities odd stuff but mostly events thefts pop art9 Step by Step Instructions short and simple drawings10 Art 101 techniues tools media some historyThis isn't bad just very simple and narrow in scope I especially enjoyed the human philosphy pages I think i spelled that right A fun uick 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 Most days the subject is uite interesting and not things I would have thought but which agree with my assessments Language is a little to flowery I really enjoy this book reading it again It makes so many connections for me I think I will restart this on January 1st haha
