Creativity is a wonderful thing and I’m always in awe of artists who, during their deepest, darkest moments, created pictures of resplendent beauty and intrigue.
However, if you don’t know the front end of a pallet from the back end of an easel, you might struggle to do anything more than blob paint on paper. I’ve never painted anything other than walls, but last week, I threw some thoughts onto a canvas and it was my interpretation of coming out of a nightmare and heading the day through a field of relaxing lavender…hey, I like it!
Your colourful blobs can be the most fun to throw onto a canvas and the resulting colour collective doesn’t have to look like anything, it just has to be a pleasing process to undertake.
Charity and thrift shops are veritable Aladdin’s caves and you are highly likely to find very inexpensive artist materials there and on good old Ebay and other auction websites.
Finally, remember, beauty in art is in the eye of the beholder; so be bold and go behold!
