Setting up a space for your art is really important. It can be as big or small as your space allows but most importantly, it must be an area that you enjoy being in and has that creative and relaxed vibe.
Over time you can start small and grow your art collection. I found a lot of my supplies on eBay where you can grab loads of art bargains. Most of my art collection has been through thrifty bidding and bargains. Ebay allowed me to get some really reasonable priced art supplies. I was then able to try so many different mediums and experiment more. Art supplies can be pricy and this is a great way to expand your art arsenal for less.
I always hang my artwork on my walls in my little studio and it’s good to look back and review them. You start to notice a progression in your art. It’ll also give you more confidence when like me people come in and compliment your artwork.
Having the courage to share your art and get peoples opinions can be really scary at first, however if you have a little courage to share your art, it really gives you a confidence boast when you get a compliment. This in turn inspires you to continue on your artistic journey. take a look at the two artworks below – the swan was completed last year and the little bird was one of my first drawing around three years ago.
Don’t stop at painting pictures if you really can’t think what to paint get upcyling – this little gem was off to the tip until I rescued him and upcycled it. It really was a great art project that cost me next to nothing. I turned this dull tired grey unit into a beautiful piece of furniture to compliment my art studio- I got a bit of a buzz as well from saving something else ending up in the landfill.
Well that’s all for this blog – thank you for reading and happy “arting” and most of all enjoy your artistic journey. I would love to hear from all of you with your artistic journeys and latest projects.
