Inspiration well running dry? This will help.

Published about 1 year ago • 1 min read

We've all been there.

You get a buzz of creative energy, like lightning in your veins.

You go get your art supplies and you sit down to begin drawing.

And as you stare at the blank paper, you realize....

You don't have any ideas.

Nothing. Nada.

Your creative well has run dry.

This used to happen to me all the time. I would get so frustrated with myself and often end up admitting defeat after a few minutes to go watch TV or scroll through social media, dejected.

What do you do when you have no inspiration to begin the drawing process?

How do you make art when you're all out of ideas?

The answer is simpler than you might think.

When you're wanting to make art but the ideas aren't flowing, you can turn to an easy creative practice called intuitive art.

What is intuitive art, you ask?

In a nutshell, intuitive art is stream-of-consciousness creation.

You know how I have been sharing my positive experiences with the Morning Pages technique all these years? Intuitive art is the same basic concept, but with drawing and painting instead than writing.

And tomorrow at 2 p.m. you can join me for a live class and demonstration -- all for free!

And if you find yourself wanting to learn more about this freestyle creative exercise, then you'll love my class on Foxsy -- Intuitive Art: Loosen Up & Break Creative Block.

I not only show you how the practice works and how to incorporate it into your art habits; I even share 13 fantastic tips for filling up your sketchbook pages quickly with beautiful art.

This intuitive art course is perfect whether you're just starting your creative journey or you've been making art professionally for years -- the technique is more about getting out of your own head and getting onto the paper.

Overthinking is the enemy of any creator, and this course shows you how to push past that common pitfall and get to the fun part of actually making art.

Do you ever sit down to paint and feel immense pressure to make this piece different? Make it mean something? Make it special somehow? I recently discovered a funny little mindset that steered my artistic growth – and hindered it in major ways. I realized that when I sat down to create, I felt like I needed to come up with everything right then and there. The concept. The colors. The composition. Every single thing had to be fresh right now if I wanted to make a nice painting. But the other...

One of the most common struggles I hear from people in this community is a lack of consistency. People have a tough time making time for their art and letting creativity be a regular part of their lives. It’s hard, when you have a life full of work, family, friends, domestic chores, and so much more, to squeeze in those habits and routines that mean so much. It’s interesting to see how art, expression, and creativity are the first to get tossed overboard when life gets hectic. And it always...
