Feeling stuck, blocked, uninspired, or bored? It can be super frustrating when it feels like your creativity has just disappeared. Here are some ideas for getting those juices flowing again and getting yourself past those limiting feelings.
If you’ve got any tips of your own for getting out of a rut and unstuck, share them in the comments below.
One of the easiest ways to move past artist’s block and begin to stoke your creative flow is a relatively simple practice – painting every day.
It doesn’t have to be a 4 hour session.
Consistency over quantity. Consistency matters. Doing a small painting daily is better for your growth than 5 big paintings a month.
20-30 minutes a day can make a huge difference.
We’re focusing on exactly this in the upcoming ART + WORK + LIVING 5 Day Painting Challenge starting April 30th.
So what’s involved in the challenge?
It’s really super simple, to make a 20-30 minute painting for 5 days straight. Each day set a timer like the one on your phone for 20 minutes (paint mixing time doesn’t count), grab your largest brush or knife, and let her rip! Keep it simple and look for the big shapes. When the timer goes off STOP!!
Subject matter, medium, and size is completely your choice but I’d suggest staying smaller.
Then if you’d like you can share your 20 minute painting with others working on the challenge here in the group.
