Each of the 42 daily exercises launches a small, immediate, and responsive painting based on a theme drawn from your daily experience. You will find suggestions on technique, approach, and materials for each day, while the "weekly lessons" explore a format or a rhythm for creating content, inspiring you to make the ordinary extraordinary as you create from every day experience.
