How Beginning Painters Can Soak Up InspirationInspiration is everywhere, but if you are a beginning painter, you might find it hard to come by. Get your creative juices going by attending a Pinot's Palette painting class. You will most likely find inspiration being with other paint enthusiasts in a fun atmosphere, facilitated by helpful instructors. Here are a few more tips to make it easier for you to find subjects to paint:
- Take pictures wherever you go – we use our smartphones for lots of tasks these days and we have our phones at hand all the time. Take a pic of whatever you find beautiful and inspiring, then review your pictures a few days after having taken them to draw inspiration.
- Make a list of things that you like to look at – whether the images you find attractive are of beautifully arranged fruits, flowers, old buildings, landscapes or people, create a list of what interests you to have an idea where to look for inspiration.
- Take your time – creative blockages come and go. If you don’t know what to paint right now, don’t worry, don’t stress yourself out and don’t force inspiration – it will come to you naturally soon, just wait it out.
- Find inspiration in art created by others – go to a gallery or browse an art book to see topics handled by accomplished artists. The work of your favorite painters can be very inspiring and motivating.
