So many people look at other’s creativity and say ‘it’s beautiful… I could never do that.’ Well guess what, you can! It just takes practice. No one picks up a new game, skill or language on the first go. If you haven’t been creative in a while – or ever – then creative recovery (ie: recovering your creativity) is going to take a while. We learn as we copy, imitate and become inspired by others. Eventually, our own ideas, preferences and style emerge until, voila! You’re creating art.
Why not begin by looking for ideas and inspiration from my videos and tutorials, books and magazines, and then try it yourself. Don’t expect perfection, just keep making art. Be gentle with yourself. And don’t quit.
