For When you Need a Little Inspiration

This week’s blog is from Nimisha’s of @sukis.sketchbook! You can find her previous blog posts herehere, and here. Nimisha creates beautiful watercolor landscapes. In this week’s post, she gives us a little insight into how she handles moments where she needs a little inspiration. ❤

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all doing well and staying safe!

I am sure those of you who’re working/studying in addition to following your ambition of being an artist might relate to the fact that our creative productivity fluctuates to accommodate more important commitments. That’s totally understandable, but it also means that missing that “burst of creativity” is a frequent occurrence, which might leave one feeling indifferent when you actually do get time to sit down and paint.

At times when I am feeling uninspired, other than the conventional method of browsing through my notepad for ideas, one thing that always gives me inspiration is the color blue

If you were to think about it subjectively, blue is the color of the bright summer sky, the deep and vast sea, the vibrant clusters of hydrangeas or irises or periwinkle blooming in a spring garden and the color of stormy rain-filled clouds. Now, that gives you four prompts to think of and countless ideas to imagine and paint! Fascinating, isn’t it?

Applying this strategy to the many other colors on the color wheel will magnify your subjects even more! Of course, if you’re like me, the ‘blue series’ will make a comeback on the pages of your sketchbook time and time again.
