There are times when we want to paint and create magic, but our mind is blank. When we try hard to think, it gives us nothing. If this is the case with you, don’t worry, I have mentioned 3 of my top favorite ways you could use for giving a little nudge to your creative mind.
What Attracts You in a Painting?
Whenever you like a painting, take some time out to analyze the painting and see what is it in the artwork that holds your attention. Once you have discovered that thing in a painting you know that Yes! I want to create something using this thing in my work. What you can do is, visit the galleries in art exhibitions in Dubai today or later tomorrow and give little time to each of the paintings there.
Try to see what medium was used, what the artist was thinking when he created that artwork, what the paintings tell you, and finally, what is it in the art that attracted you? This is surely inspiring. Do not forget to carry a notebook and jot down any points that come to you. After that, take a walk in the fresh air, and look around, gaze each and everything and see the world around you.
Decide on What You are Good At
Are you better at abstract, photorealistic or expressionist? Let’s say abstract is your comfort zone. However, try to budge out of your comfort zone and experiment something new. For example, try a looser approach to art. If you haven’t tried texture on your work, this is the time to build 3D layers. You can get inspiration from art events and exhitbions such as world art Dubai. The more you try new things, the better you know what inspires you the most. It is a trial and error thing. Finally, when you have given each and everything a try, you will know what you better like working on.
What Scares You?
Are you afraid that people will judge you based on your painting, or that your work is not good enough? Let me tell you one thing. You create art for yourself, not to impress others. If you are happy with it, there’s no further discussion. Remember, art is a subjective and no matter how hard we try to avoid people, they will talk about it.
Give yourself a challenge today. Step out of your comfort zone and try new things, look around and try something you never thought you will ever paint. Yes! It looks scary, but in order for you to grow as an artist, you need to chase your fears.
Finally, art is something that gives you happiness and peace to look at. There are numerous art galleries in Dubai that display the work of some of the most reputed artists from all around the world. Visit these galleries for inspiration and view different types of paintings in Dubai. I am sure, something or the other will inspire you.
