Find Inspiration

 Here are some ways which will help you find inspiration to paint art. As an artist, sometimes it may seem hard to find inspiration for your paintings, when in fact, most of the inspiration is all around you. We tend to learn to tune ourselves out to the little things in life that are so enjoyable to us and that may inspire us the most.

One of the best ways to find inspiration is by viewing other artists work. You can do this on the internet, by going to the library and viewing books, or by going to an art gallery or art museum. Studying someone's artwork, can really help you find inspiration for your own paintings. You can study the way the paintings are designed and it will motivate you to begin you own creations.

 Take a walk and discover the natural world. Take your camera with you too, so you can capture some ideas. Look at the way the shadow falls from a tree and how the light reflects on the leaves. Studying nature can bring your paintings alive. This will bring real inspiration to your paintings. Everyday life is what makes a painting so real. The simplest things can make the most amazing artistic creations. Finding inspiration to paint art is not hard.

 Playing music that inspires creativity is a great way to put emotion and feeling into your art. Try something you don't ordinarily listen to. There are so many choices in music that you will never run out of options. You will find more inspiration for your paintings than you've ever had before.

 Even an idea can become an awesome artwork. Some artists strictly paint on ideas and making certain points. It may be a certain idea that is close to their heart that they feel needs to be brought to the public eye. It is usually a very good one as they can put their entire mind and soul into it. To be inspired to paint art this way, you would have to be moved by an idea that touches you in a big way. It is very emotional and some can totally see the painting in their mind before it is painted. It is best to make drawings of the idea as soon as you have the idea from the start and it may change as you progress until the final outcome has been completed. Being inspired by an idea and creating it, is the hardest way to paint. It's a lot of hard work and trial and error. In the end, it is a one of a kind work of art. Not all artists can paint from ideas, but may paint by subjects or landscape or people. Ideas are harder to bring across. They are inspired by the soul of the artist.
