To be creative is one of the hardest and most physical and emotional taxing things you can do!
1) Be well rested and relaxed! I find if I am tired and have been rushing around then the last thing I can do is sit down and be able to paint or be creative.
2) Paint, Create what is in your heart and Don’t put pressure on yourself! Paint what you feel you want to paint Not what others tell you to! This includes painting what you enjoy and love rather than what is in vogue for now.
3) Experiment! Experiment with using new products, new techniques, and colours etc… When we stay in one place and don’t wish to look outside the box we are comfortable in, that is when we tend to get stayed and bored in our ways… and then Creativity is usually the first thing to go!
4) Maybe Create with others? Joining an art class, group or simply find a friend to paint with… Painting is such an uplifting thing to do and is always enjoyable with others, you may find very special friendships within your painting groups and also you can kick of different ideas you may have.
