Hello everyone!! Welcome to another #thoughtfultHursday with me, Nysha.
Today, I thought about sharing my process before a painting is done, I hope it helps you somehow lead you to the area to create any type of art, whether painting, drawing, making music, making a video, etc. This process is not in a rules book, each artist has their own path and process to enter the creative area.
Let us begin:
Basic idea: This part of the whole process is random, sometimes I only click, I could inspire me on a concept that I read recently, or an image that I looked online, or a combination of colors that I saw somewhere, and no Have a fixed pattern, an idea can originate anywhere if you keep your eyes and mind open at all times. That’s when I take a note on my phone or draw something basic in the sketchbook if I have it with me at that time.
Collecting references: whether to use references or has not been a debatable topic for a long time, I like to see it in this way, well, the idea can be implemented with or without references depending on what you are doing, using references does. It does not mean that you copy it blindly, it just means inspiring yourself, it is sometimes important to use the referenced, such as when you are drawing a tree, you may not be able to look at a tree where you are drawing it, so you would. Naturally, use a reference image of a tree, while when it comes to abstract, you do not need to use references. Once, I have an idea, I tend to collect some references and use them all for sometimes I finish using any, it is too unpredictable to me.
My creative space: one of the most important things for me is to have a relaxing space where I feel absolutely comfortable and I am free to create what I imagine. Usually, I turn on a candle, or probably a pole of incense (I love), I put good music (what kind? It depends totally on my mood), then I do some tea or green coffee, once I have My brilliant environment. And brilliant, is when the real work begins.
Execution: Then, as you know, make art look like a fast process, but it is much more than simply collecting the canvas and starting to put colors, it is a longer process that requires time and patience. After all this, I quickly decide on what colors to use in my piece, and the background according to the paint, if I am doing a portrait, the background is something that I fight quite frequently, so I make sure to plan it with anticipation. To avoid my misery later.
And the painting begins â¦
