When I’m at a creative block, there’s no way I can be loose in my art.
That’s why every painting I create begins with a playful background. It’s my time to experiment and let go so I can be more free when I paint my whimsical characters.
I try and remember to always have fun with whatever I’m creating. If I think too much about the end result or try to paint what’s in my head, I either freeze or paint something lifeless.
If you’re looking to loosen up and paint with more freedom, try taking photos of your paintings in-progress. This helps me realize every painting has an ugly stage and any negative self talk completely takes the fun out of creating.
Once I realized this happened to me every time, I learned to ignore my inner critic and just let go.
