Lack of inspiration

I’m sure we’ve all been there many times. You have lots of free time that you can finally spend on your own stuff… but then that blasted artist’s block shows its ugly head and completely prevents you from creating anything.

For the last month (and longer) I seem to have been cursed by this. There is a severe lack of inspiration. Maybe a lack of motivation too. Where you do want to create something, but you just can’t get yourself to do it. I think that one of my problems at the moment is that I don’t really know what technique and what style I can use any more. I guess I feel a bit lost maybe.

I’m desperately looking for inspiration, for something that will give me that spark I need to get back into art and to create images. It’s been so long since I created anything and I really miss that feeling of finishing an image and being happy with it and then showing it to people.

What are your ways to get inspiration?

Is there anything out there that just makes you want to pick up your brush and create art?

  1. Hi Ine,

    It's Dave (blythart) from Redbubble here. I love your whimsical style and wish you would do more paintings like that. It's good to be trying new things but sometimes it is wise to maintain the progress you have already made in your original style as well. No harm in having a few styles.
