Product Description

A unique system for jump-starting artistic creativity, encouraging experimentation and growth, and increasing sales for artists of all levels, from novices to professionals.
 
Have you landed in a frustrating rut? Are you having trouble selling paintings in galleries, getting bogged down by projects you can’t seem to finish or abandon, or finding excuses to avoid working in the studio? Author Carol Marine knows exactly how you feel—she herself suffered from painter’s block, until she discovered “daily painting.” The idea is simple: do art (usually small) often (how often is up to you), and if you’d like, post and sell it online. Soon you’ll find that your block dissolves and you’re painting work you love—and more of it than you ever thought possible!

With her encouraging tone and useful exercises, Marine teaches you to:
-Master composition and value
-Become confident in any medium including oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolors, and other media
-Choose subjects wisely
-Stay fresh and loose
-Photograph, post, and sell your art online
-Become connected to the growing movement of daily painters around the world

“A short treatise on behalf of the medium. Paint small and often, [Marine] encourages in her 182-page tome, part how-to, part history lesson. She outlines the power of daily painting, the materials to get your started, the tips to keep you going and the best solutions for creative block.” –Huffington Post
 
“Artist Carol Marine wisely proposes that art can be made in tiny increments and become a daily practice, much akin to ritual or prayer. Her new guide,  Daily Painting, will open up a plot of fertile ground in your artistic imagination... Previous experience is unnecessary: Her book gives you all the tools you’ll need to become a daily painter, with well-organized and encouraging advice.”—Book Page

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Introduction
Early in my painting career, a professional artist I admired advised me to paint every day. He said it was the only way to get any better. I promptly ignored his advice and continued to coast as a starving artist for years.

But in 2006 all that changed. That was when I discovered daily painting—a movement that encourages artists to create one small painting nearly every day, and sell that work online. Before daily painting, I was in a frustrated rut. But after that epiphany in 2006, I not only improved my skills rapidly, I launched a successful art career and a website, dailypaintworks.com, that is quite popular. And now I am proud to say I am no longer starving!

While the idea of painting every day may sound overwhelming, let me assure you, there are no specific rules or requirements. Really when I say you should paint “daily,” I mean you should paint “often”—but “Artists Who Paint Often” wasn’t catchy enough to jump-start a whole movement! Sure, the ideal might be that you paint every day, but not many of us can commit that much time to art, so we must settle for as often as we can. The daily-painting movement encompasses artists who paint daily, weekly, monthly, or intermittently. What ties these artists together, and qualifies them as “daily painters”? The simple fact that they strive to paint frequently, without getting bogged down by perfectionism, procrastination, or any of the myriad things that keep us out of the studio.

The benefits of painting often are huge, as are the advantages of making small art (though not necessarily only small). We learn just as much about composition, color, paint application, value, and so on in one hour with a small painting as we do toiling for weeks on a larger one. And because it only takes an hour or so, we can fit it into our busy schedules and we ​aren’t heartbroken (and/or broke) if it doesn’t work out. We can then apply the knowledge—and, if our painting is a success, the confidence—we’ve gained to larger work.

“Small” art means different things to different artists. A lot of daily painters (including me) are in the habit of doing a lot of 6 by 6-inch paintings, but this is absolutely not a requirement. Some artists feel more comfortable turning out tiny paintings, some like larger surfaces, and still others do ​a wide variety of sizes, depending on the subject, day, and so on.

There are also no requirements in terms of media or subject matter. Daily “painters” use anything from oil to pastel to collage to charcoal and more. They paint a huge variety of subjects from still lifes to portraits to cityscapes to cats to completely abstract and beyond. The great thing about doing lots of little paintings is that you can try everything! You can do three little oil paintings of apples today, a portrait of your dog tomorrow in pastel, two versions of the tree in your front yard in watercolor the next day, and on and on. The fun never stops!

Most daily painters use a blog to document their progress and showcase their work. A blog is easy to set up, free, and a cinch to update. Even if you blog just for yourself, with no intention to sell, the connections you can make with other artists are amazing! Too often, we artists work all day alone in the studio, with only our spouse, kids, or animals to give us feedback. And while they mean well, they don’t always have the most encouraging things to say. My (least) favorite from my husband is, “Is it done?” But I get comments on my blog every day from people (mostly artists) who give me positive feedback that keeps my spirits high.
These connections have also brought about huge opportunities for my career. I got my first invitation to teach six months after I started blogging and now get so many, I have to turn most of them down.

In a time when galleries are closing all around us, the Internet offers a new, exciting venue for artists. Our potential market is the whole world, while galleries rely mostly on foot traffic. We are more in touch with our buyers, which gives us a better understanding of our market. Best of all, we skip the high gallery commissions and so do our buyers!

This book is a chance for me to share with you all the valuable lessons I’ve learned from painting daily: from materials to color mixing to ignoring your brain to photographing your art to marketing yourself online. I’ve also included lots of examples of other artists’ daily paintings to inspire you as to what’s possible in terms of medium and subject matter.
I have been happily painting daily since 2006 and don’t intend to stop. If you are serious about improving your skills, increasing your sales, and expanding your network of artists, I recommend you do the same!

I absolutely loved this book, ‘Daily Painting: Paint Small and Often To Become a More Creative, Productive, and Successful Artist’ Here’s the biggest reason why it was fabulous. As an artist, such as myself, when I went to ‘School Of Visual Arts’ in Manhattan, from 1978-1982, our painting teachers were always wanting and expecting us to make our own HUGE canvases, over 4 feet, in both directions. It was a while ago, & obviously we didn’t have the ‘thing’ called a computer. We had to learn, not to just make our own stretched canvases, but the bigger painting we did the more attention we received by the class & teacher. It was the day of ‘Studio 54’, everything had to be big and talked by the critiques from the teacher & class, right down to the spec of color, whether needed or not needed! If ANYONE had a painting less than 5 feet, that person was not considered a ‘serious artist’ & resorting to purchasing your own canvas, which was an absolute sin, by many famous students and professionals at SVA, buying ones own small canvas meant you were lazy!

Well I wasn’t lazy! And in those days I was a very poor, student, artist & buying more paint meant more money I didn’t have which led me to making my own paint, like all the famous artists did from Day 1 until paint was in tubes?! YES, I learned the hard way and it taught me self discipline also..but as a 59 year old, am still an artist..I NEVER knew how to paint small?! It just wanted considered art..those were my teachers, I’m sure there were a few around..but when Andy Warhol decided to make one of my best friends in our freshman year, Keith Herring, famous, and Keith’s canvasses were the symbols of the ‘80’s all around HUGE blank empty subway ‘canvasses’, painting small was taboo!

Writing this I probably sound like a fool! But we didn’t have an ability to photoshop, to make tiny figures, unless we were in film school, but I was a fine artist/illustrator, and didn’t get praised for my paintings of the “Masters”! “It’s not BIG ENOUGH..Jackson Pollacks canvass was on the ground, or in his empty room! Picasso threw his paint with his brushes to create ‘Masterpieces’!!

So do you see why I never knew how to paint..small? This book, I so wish I had purchased the Hardcover, but I still make it work..has taught me that I did absolutely NOTHING WRONG as an 18 yr old out of HS to a world of “whatever you knew before..threw it out the window!” I knew I was good yet intimidated by others perfection and not my own!!

I owe my journal painting and actually, Bible painting over scriptures & verses due to this book! I owe many things & challenges I never did, whether writing or my painting to things I learned in later life.

This book not is just encouraging, but as everything I wrote above, I guarantee my ‘friends’ in the art world know EXACTLY what I was speaking of & the ‘BIGGER THE BETTER’..was always the motto, but if you think about it as much as I did..how the HELL are you productive or successful on a daily basis..painting LARGE?! Thank you Carol Marine! I love you for opening my eyes to ‘teaching older dogs newer tricks”! I can’t wait to finish my gallery show with smaller paintings too!! Thank you again ❤️ I promise for you young art students, painting large is NOT always the best. It has its great moments, but think of the great ideas you’d miss out on if you’re not being productive sooner than later? I highly recommend for new artists and us older artists who used to know the “you no know I knew”?! 😁😁😁💕💕

Inspiration works in strange ways. One artist inspires another, who inspire others.

In Daily Painting, author and artist Carol Marine talks about how she was inspired by Duane Keiser who''s another daily painter. So since 2006, Marine has been painting daily, and selling her work online.

Marine talks about her experience on painting daily, where she finds inspiration and subjects to draw, techniques involved and how you can sell your paintings online. It''s very inspiring and insightful. It certainly gives me the if-she-can-do-it-so-can-I feeling.

Actually the book covers more technical topics. Here are the contents.

1. How daily painting changed my life (and can change yours too!)
2. My materials
3. Subject matters
4. Value
5. Color mixing
6. Drawing and proportion
7. Composition
8. Staying fresh and loose with oil
9. Fighting artist''s block
10. How to photograph and edit small paintings
11. Tips for better online sales

I really like the idea of painting small. Somethings the size of a blank canvas can be intimidating. It''s difficult for a small painting to match a big one in terms of impact, but it''s likely to sell better because it''s more affordable. All these info are mentioned in the book. It also includes a chapter on subject matter that talks about the kind of subjects that work well on a small canvas.

Marine uses oil as her main medium. However her tips and techniques can often apply to other media as well except for things specific to oil, such as wiping a canvas and starting over again.

Throughout the book, there are many other artists being featured with examples of their paintings, sometimes with interviews, such as in the latter chapter on dealing with artist block. All paintings featured look beautiful and inspiring.

The best part about the book is it shows you the possibility of selling your work online. It''s a model that works for Marine and other painters. I''ve went ahead and check out the listing of other artists and her paintings on eBay and some other websites and can see people buying at the listed price. It''s great to see other artists make a living using this method and it''s something that anyone can get into. It''s certainly very motivating.

This is a great book for all artists. Highly recommended.

(See more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I really don''t understand why this book has so many glowing reviews. I don''t normally write reviews myself, but I have to express my disappointment. I hope this might help someone else avoid wasting their money.

You don''t have to buy this book to get the main point: Do small paintings every day. That in itself sounds like a good idea. It starts off with the author''s personal story about how daily paintings changed her life, which is actually pretty inspirational. But you can read most of this part in the free preview without buying the book. It goes downhill from there, so consider yourself warned.

The next chapter is all about the supplies the author uses. Why should we care about this? I don''t know about everyone else reading this, but I was interested in this book because I am an artist. So I already have supplies and I know what I like to use. Even if you are looking for recommendations, the author''s will be irrelevant to you if you''re not an oil painter. (The whole book is focused quite a bit on oil painting.) The chapter ends with a random section about how to take paint on a plane. Just... what?

Next, there''s a chapter about different subjects to paint. There is a literal bullet list of subjects like "still lives and flowers," "animals," "people," "landscapes," etc, followed by a list of media like "oils," "acrylics," and so on. We obviously all know that flowers are a thing you can paint and acrylics are a medium you can use to paint them. Who on earth needs this information?? The chapter then gives examples of artists who paint these various subjects and some general tips on how to paint them. This is somewhat interesting, and I guess the idea is to encourage people to try painting different subjects. But if I wanted to learn more about painting landscapes, for instance, I could buy a book about painting landscapes. I don''t see why this chapter is necessary here.

The book then goes into a series of chapters with basic lessons on things like value, color theory, drawing, and composition. Experienced artists won''t need this information, and anyone who does need it can find better resources to learn it elsewhere.

Then there''s a chapter all about oil painting, specifically how to paint loosely in oils. But not everyone is an oil painter, and not everyone wants to paint loosely.

The chapter about artist block was the only part that actually had some value to me. It will probably be relatable to anyone trying to make a living as an artist. Because of this I am giving two stars instead of one. But still, I don''t think this one chapter was worth the price of a whole book.

The last two chapters about photographing your artwork and selling it online might be useful to some people, but a lot of the information is outdated. Blogs aren''t as big of a thing now as they used to be, and no one who wants to look professional should follow the author''s suggestion of using Blogger as their main platform. Again, you can find better information elsewhere.

Maybe I''m just not the target audience for this book. If you''re someone who''s never picked up a paintbrush in your life but has suddenly decided you might like to learn to paint and launch an art career, maybe this book would actually help you. But if you''re already an experienced artist, you may be better off skipping this one.

I just got this book last night, and I stayed up late reading it with a night light, until I passed out. I am ready and inspired! I consider myself an artist, but I only practice art once every few years (or decades) by forcing myself to take an art class. If you have taken classes, you know that only in rare instances will you get an art instructor that actually teaches you something. They are usually there for moral support, IMO. Art classes are the only way I made myself take time out of my busy life to create some art. Obviously, it''s like starting over from scratch every time with my personal art skills. I am really going to make an effort to start painting more (maybe once every Monday night to start?), and I love the idea of doing small pieces, so as not to commit or to feel the unfinished project looming over me forever.

I''ve taken art classes in the past, but this is a great refresher course, and then some. I learned some things that I never learned in class. She has a talent for teaching and inspiring!

Wow. Is this book ever a surprise. It''s written by, wait for it, a real artist who is not trying to pompously congratulate herself, but rather to help other people to paint and enjoy it. She even talks with other artists, and puts their advice in the book, too. Marine provides practical how-to advice, and gives fantastic, down-to-earth, realistic views about painting. I''m sad that I didn''t have this book when I was in college. Carol''s college art experience is almost a mirror image of mine, wherein I suffered the fallout of lazy, tenured professors who literally didn''t teach anything practical, just told us students that we needed to stretch our own canvases, and then be edgy in all of our works. ... Carol uses oil paints, but this book is an essential guide for all painters, no matter which type of paint medium they choose. Whether you''re a hobbyist or rekindling your long lost love for painting, you will definitely benefit from this book. AND, if you wish to become a career artist, this book is an amazing how-to guide for that, too. In all, this book gives an enormous bang for the buck and it INSPIRES. Carol Marine, Brava! And thank you. :)

A beautiful, inspirational book that helps you forgive yourself and move on if your every painting is not a masterpiece. I''ve been painting as an amateur for over 30 years, and have been on-again, off-again with it because, heck, it''s just what I do for fun. Three bad paintings in a row and I''m discouraged and quit for a while. But there''s a gratification that I get when I do a really good painting that I don''t find anywhere else, so it matters to me. The concept of keeping your "painting muscle" toned up and strong by painting every day makes sense to me.

Once you''re competent at the basics, just looking at paintings you like can keep you inspired. I love Ms. Marine''s painting style and enjoy just flipping through the book, but it also includes chapters on mixing color, color theory, drawing and composition. Let''s face it, we can all use a little refresher from time to time! A visit to the dailypaintworks.com website is also inspiring - and how cool to be able to actually buy paintings by the authors of your favorite books (or by artists they include in their books). In the past, my fave authors sold only in galleries, far far away from where I lived, and cost thousands of dollars.

This is going on the shelf with my favorite art instruction books: Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards (it taught me to draw); How to See Color and Paint It, by Arthur Stern (it taught me to mix color), and Painting with a Fresh Eye by Alfred C. Chadbourn, along with a few by Charles Sovek, (they showed me what I wanted to achieve in my paintings). Daily Painting fits, because it''ll help keep me inspired.

This is such a helpful and inspiring book for any artist. I''d been painting for years, with months upon months of down time in between paintings. When I did paint, I found that the amount of time invested in my painting increased the pressure for me to create a masterpiece. As a result, I often got stuck and found the process a bit exhausting and not as fun as I remembered painting was when I first began. Daily Painting provided several inspirations that clicked with me. Of them, these are my favorite in my own words. When you commit to painting a small painting every day (as much as that is possible) you don''t feel so bad if your creation isn''t an award winner as you would if you put weeks into it. Another... when you apply what you''ve learned from one painting into the next and so on you improve significantly; and lastly when you have a short amount of time to do something you are more likely to get it done than if you have all the time in the world to procrastinate. Her book covers her own journey to becoming a daily painter and all of the wonderful things that happened along the way. She outlines what she did for the reader to try out on their own. I found this quite inspiring and it was just the right amount of spark to re-light my fire for painting. She referenced an old adage...one needs to paint 500 paintings or 10,000 hours to become a great painter. A great inspirational book!

Someone recommended this book and I got a sample on kindle first. I liked the informal style at the beginning of the first chapter so bought it. And that was about it- after that point I was disappointed. The informal style became borderline childish. It got repetitive. I found the author just waffled on quite a bit. The suggestion and advice on composition is not too helpful either. The author uses language in a way which can be discouraging to an amateur artist. For example they may think if you don''t follow the ''rules'' the author has written and emphasised, they will never be able to get their art/painting right, which is not true. The reader needs to make that decision themselves and not forced to believe it. They may never try to develop their own style if they are following her every step and ''rule''. There are no rules in art. Secondly, this book was written about 10 years ago, hence for 2020+ it is an outdated book- from social media perspective. For someone who is planning to sell online there is no mention of Instagram or Pinterest- that''s not the authors fault obviously but I wanted to make this important point that it is not so relevant as far as social media is concerned if that''s what the reader is hoping to do. Things have moved on a lot from when this was written. Thirdly, this is about oil painting but again it may not be relevant to some as the tips you pick up can be used in Acrylics or other media. Fourthly, there is alot of input from other artists which is fine but in my opinion, it doesn''t really add any value to it. Lastly the print is quite small for a book like this. There is so much empty space on one page- the font could have been bigger and more appealing. I did struggle with it and I do have perfect eyesight (for now!) The good thing about the book is that there are some lovely paintings which I admired a lot. All in all I would say reading this book is more like reading the authors own diary than a book to be inspired with. Quite disappointing.

This is not a how-to-paint book for beginners, but is very inspirational for artists who are seeking new ways to overcome personal confidence problems with their work. Carol uses her own experiences to show how she also struggled at various times to push her work forward. Getting involved with the daily painting mindset made a big difference and she now paints pretty much every day. Carol and her husband David are behind the DailyPaintWorks website, a hugely popular online gallery where artwork can be sold "straight" or by auction. The book itself gives insights as to how Carol approaches her pictures, many of which are just six inches square. There are many useful tips for getting into the daily painting routine; choosing subjects; arranging still life; choosing colour for impact, and more. Other artists also contribute their stories with many examples of their creativity. I have painted for years and also am a member on this gallery; having adopted several of Carol''s approaches to planning and painting, I can say that I have found the book very enlightening.

The author points out the common mistakes students make and fresh new ways of improving. For me it gives me a lot of the things I would like a tutor to say to me which they don''t usually tell you! I like art books but some are just a vehicle to show off the author''s work and none of the down to earth nitty gritty. This book has got lots of "improvers" nitty gritty. I have done many courses for older adults and found none have me this grade of teaching like you find in the book.
