Switch It Up–It’s an experiment only if You have never done it, You cannot experiment with the familiar.- Bob C Forget who you are. Step outside your Boundaries and set yourself Art free. I switched from Oils to watercolour and from detailed Realism to Big bold brush strokes and Abstracts. When I go back to Oils, I can do it with a Fresh approach.- Cindy R. Hold The Paint brush from the end, Not up close to bristles. Try using Three ball point pens ( black, blue, and red ) and then sketch ( a Scene ) as Fast as possible. Try painting with Rooftop aluminum paints, Add plaster and linseed oil in addition, to your Typical media.- Jeff T I broke out and will Experiment with just about any Materials and mix up every Technique and really like the outcome.- Elsie D What has helped me so far is making My art in a Series.

Flow and Play–Approach your Artistic practice as though you are a child. Collect Interesting things like onion bags, bubble wrap, pieces of chain or cord, etc… Incorporate things you have, like tissue paper, wrapping paper, napkins, paper clips. Anything can be your Support. Play freely.

7 Studio Session Jump-Starts
Feeling uninspired? Do not know where to begin? Need a Nudge to get back to the Easel? Try these Seven ideas to Power up your Creativity.
Jean Grastorf says, a change can be Productive and Beneficial. If you Paint large, paint small. If you Paint transparent, mix things up with opacity. Or if you paint realistically, try Working abstractly. If you Work with abstract concepts, try Painting your surroundings. If you Paint landscapes, try a Self-portrait. Be Open to Change, and be Confident that the bucket of Creativity is there. It just needs a little time to get it all Moving Again.
If the Art Creativity has gone missing from your Art Studio, try Welcoming it back with the folllowing points, used by Grastorf, and the Other Painter and Instructors, Like Mike Bailey and Antonio Masi.
Find Inspiration among your Art Materials–Art materials are Beautifully Inspirational, so keep them out during your Studio session.
Change your Subject and palette–Grastorf says Paint a series. Use the Same technique, change the Palette of Colors and the Subject. The result will be Totally different.
Go back to Move forward–Older, Unresolved paintings can trigger New Inspiration and Ideas. Revisiting, them eliminates the Fear of a Blank sheet of paper, and the Physical acts of drawing and painting, Light up the Creative areas of the brain.
Antonio Masi Keeps His Creativity By, Gesso-ing–When I have not painted for some time, I use two Gesso Techniques. Build a Smooth gesso foundation, I usually have an Idea of what to paint, in my Studio. I take a can of gesso, a palette knife and some Old brushes, I apply a Thick layer of gesso onto a Sheet of 300-lb. paper. I let the gesso harden completely, which results in a Reflective surface, and Brilliant paint Colors can Be added. Add Texture using gesso. Sometimes I Create peaks and Valleys while the gesso is still Moist on the paper. By pressing an Object into the gesso, then removing the Item and letting the gesso dry. Channels for Rivers of paint are ready, to flow through, Producing, amazing results.
Lift to Add–Lifting – Removing paint with a brush, paper towel or tissue – is a Subtractive process, and one I employ, to Start a Watercolor painting quickly. I apply Diluted gesso on a 300-lb. Sheet of paper and let it dry. Using a Large brush, I apply an overall Dominant color and Let it dry. Next, I add the darks. Using a Stiff brush in Various sizes dipped in clean water, I begin creating the light areas. Which I then Scrub and blot with a paper towel. I continue until I have Achieved the desired whiteness, almost Back to the white of the Untouched surface. When the paint is dry, I add the Final touches of color.
Mike Bailey Pushes His Artistic Boundaries–Challenge yourself , to push your Art creative boundaries. Set up a Still Life and make a Series of 20 Paintings, without Varying or changing the Composition or point of view. Focus on just One of the Seven elements of design– Line, size, shape, space, color, texture and value, in each of the Paintings. For example? how many ways can A line be used in a Single painting? How does a warm color palette Impact the setup? What about a Cool palette? What happens if you Merge or distort the shapes? The goal was always to Explore, What would Happen If?…From this came many Realizations and discoveries.
In doing So–By Manipulating the various Elements of design, I found I could create different Emotions or moods. That textures could make a Non-objective painting extraordinary, that a Line could be used in Plethora of ways to Enliven a design, that colors in Various contexts made or ruined a Painting, and so Many more, Ideas… ( Article, Art inspiration, Watercolor. Art Network 2021 ).
The Following Painting is My Unique Attempt at Mixed Media, Art Creating. I drew the Picture of the Girl, from a Free Photo stock photo, in my Unique Style. Then I used Acrylic Paints to mix colors to Paint over the Drawing. When dry, I used Watercolors, Acrylic paints, Gel pens and Fine marker, to Complete the Painting. I think the Effect in this Painting is Different and Original, to the work I have Art Created, Previously…

Inspiring Mixed Media
Art is a highly Multifarious range of Visual or performed works that Express the Art creators ideas or skills and Appeal to the Viewers, Senses or emotions. Art can be created with anything, and Not necessarily any one thing. When different Media or materials are used to Art create Unique visual art, it is called Mixed Media Art.
The use of Mixed media began, around 1912 when Cubists, like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, started adding Collages to their canvases. Gradually the Art form became Widespread as Artists developed, increasingly Open attitudes to the Media of art. Surrealists, Abstract Expressionists, Pop Artists, and Brit Artists, jumped onto the Mixed media bandwagon, and Expanded the Art vocabulary.
How to Start Mixed Media Art?
Mixed Media Artists work with a Variety of media in a Single artwork. To get started with Mixed media art, begin by Looking at things around you. You need a Sturdy material, which can Act as a base like a Paper, sketchbook, a box, or any such object, you have Access to. Begin working with Media, that you are already Familiar with. If you Work with watercolors, you can, add Highlights with colored pencils or markers. You can Create collages by rearranging, Elements in your work using Paper, canvas or woodblocks.
In the Painting that Follows below, my Attempt at Mixed Media Collage, was from a Free Photo stock photo of a Landscape Scenery in Canada. I drew the picture in my Free style, Unique way. I cut out shapes of stars, moons, and rocks, for the collage part of this painting, preparation. I then glued the shapes on blank Watercolor paper. I then drew the Picture, of the Landscape and the Deer. Then I made an Acrylic wash, to paint over the Area. When dry, I used Watercolors, Acrylics, and Later Fine marker to Complete the Mixed Media Collage, Painting.
This painting is My Unique and Original Contribution to this Art Creation, it gave Me great pleasure to Create this painting. When initially Starting the painting it was difficult to work out, what I needed to do. As I worked at Looking and Mixing Colours, the Tempo sped up, and before I knew it, I had this Painting.

In this Blog, Create A Series of Paintings, Why Not?. I am Thinking, you will find this an Interesting Preposition, to Think about, and to Explore Further in this Blog? I Think this all Sounds, Exciting and Very interesting, when we are Art Creative Artists. It could Be Necessary Information that we have in our thoughts, to help us to Succeed as Artists?
Why Create A Series of Paintings?– Lynn McLain says, in her Article in the Artists Network, ( 2016 ), Challenge Yourself to Create a Series of Paintings. McLain thinks that seeing Everyday subjects in Imaginative ways, can create a whole Newer world of Art Creating. How?, by Pushing yourself to Explore the subjects in a Series of Paintings. You will Without doubt be nicely surprised, with the Art Creation outcome.
McLain initially mastered Technique, and then Wondered what it was that she was trying to Art Express? It was from this Point, that she began searching for Something New, different, Something to fill her Creative Emptiness.
McLain thought to look for a Painting subject, that would offer Textual excitement, with Design Challenges. It was this Reflection, and Visual search that led her to do Two different paintings, that changed the Perspective of the Art, she Created. The first was a Self-portrait from an Aerial perspective looking down onto her Bald Head. She honestly believes this was all about Her, Life Circumstances at that time. It was also a Vehicle on the way, to searching for a Newer Creative Self…
The Second Painting that had an impact in her Search for a Newer Direction, featured a Road that left the Landscape and Travelled up to the sky. At this Point she Noticed, the Excellent Art Composition Possibilities.
McLain said that, this was what lead to, Gradual Thought Processes, Awareness, and Faith that Led to the First Series of Her Paintings.
You Wonder, what is A Series of Art Created Paintings. A Series is an Artistic Way, to show the Extraordinary Qualities, in the everyday Visual Landscape, that we as Life Observers See, On A Daily Basis… Like the Beauty of Colours, textures, and the Extreme Contrasts in Light and Dark, which are Found Everywhere…
When McLain Art Created in this Manner Initially, she did paint Realistically. At this point in time, she Crops and Embellishes the Subject and she Proceeds to Paint, and The Result is Abstract Art Work.
A Series Allows for the Subject Topic, to Reveal itself to the Observant Viewer, which in return gives, Endless Art Creative Possibilities. It gives the Artist, a Huge Platform, to Explore and Work, on Unique Art Creations. The outcome is, Similar or Different in A Series, which is the Continuation of a Subject, or Topic.
In Starting a Series, think about Making a list of all things you are attracted to. Could it be Light, Shadow, Colour. Maybe a Specific Location?, you should think about the questions to ask Yourself and Not Focus wholly on the Answers… To conclude this Article, McLain, says Working In A Series, will Strengthen Your Paintings Skills, Improve your Visual Understanding of a Subject, and Show You, How to Best Express Your Ideas. Making your Creative Skills come Alive, as in choosing the Best Composition, Colour, for the Next Painting in the Series…
The Following Paintings are my Series of Paintings, based on Prayer Temples. In this case, the Temple is the Same, I have used Different Media to Embellish and Art Create the Four Paintings. I have labeled the Paintings as to what came into my Mind when, the Paintings had been Coloured and Completed.

In this Next Article in the Art Business.com , we Note what the Art Business.com have to say for the,
Reasons for Artists to Make Art in Series–
Advantages to Bodies of Work Over Single Pieces?–If You as the Artist want that we the Audience Understand You and Your Art Creations and Processes, You Need to help Us Figure Out What you are Doing?
The Easist way to do this is to work In A Series, that is to Art Create, Unified, cohesive, coherent Related bodies of work. Many Artists are not fully aware of the Advantages to creating multiple works of art, close to the same Idea, theme, philosophy, concept, topic, composition, or Subject matter.
What most Artist do is Art Create, Onesies or Whatever Strikes My Fancy, which results in Unrelated, disjointed, and incoherent Art Work. A single painting has No Beginning, middle or End. It has no Theme, no plot, no context or Direction. This is called one OFF, Which has No Value or Substance, for the Potential Buyer… The Buyer wants to Experience, how the Art is taking them on a Journey, an adventure, and that Which will Immerse, them in something Bigger and More Meaningful. Progressively, Enlightening or Elucidating them, Along the Artists Journey, which is All Unique Art Creating…
The Article says, when to many Choices are given to a Buyer. People feel Overwhelmed, they do not have the Time or energy, to see the Identity or the purpose of the Artist. Frustrated they Buy Nothing…
The Artists Common excuse for not working in A series, they do not want to be repetive, forced or locked into Compositions or categories. To Then end up in a Dead End, Art Creative Situation. Artist say it is all about their Artistic Freedom, to Produce the, Art They Choose, and Not Be Art Creative Constrained to Produce, A Series, Same or Similar Art.
A Series is not About repetition. It is To be able to Explore, investigate, or Examine particular compositions or Categories, ideas, topics, in a Progressive deeper more Meaningful way. The Experienced Artist will tell you, the more Involved and committed they become, that more Possibilities, Enlighten them. Even if, all the Paintings are related, in Some Way.
This Article concludes, that we as Artists follow this Assertion, For the Artist who Prefer or insist on making different Kinds of art, Work on several Series simultaneously. One last point is, once you Finalize the ideas behind A series of Body of work, stay with them, this is what Will Make you A Success. YOU Will, Advance in Your Art Creative Career.
My Opinion is that An Art Creating, Series? …, is not Original or Unique to the Artist, Individual Need or Choice, to work the Way they make Art Creations, in their Natural way and Progression of their Choosing. Remember Artists, even as, Individuals, we are Not Equal, Not One of Us, We All have our, Methods, of Learning, Creating and Working ( Producing the Art Creations and Work we do? ) I Think this Article is, Untrue, we all Know, that Variety is the Spice of Natural Life. Maybe that is the Reason we Have so Many Problems in Our World?
I conclude that this Idea is Outdated, it was So in the Past Art History, when Art Creating was New. As a New Discipline it was the Rule.. Today, we have Moved, On and Past all these Rules and Constraints… ?Agree???…There are too Many Newer Possibilities, Ideas, Uniqueness, and Media to Use and to Do Things, With…I would like to Hear You Artist’s, Ideas and Thoughts, on What? A Series of Art Works, means to YOU.

The Two Paintings which Follow, are My Interpretation of Photography to Illustraion Art Creating. I have made the Paintings in the Traditional Method, in My Unique Style and Technique Use.
Like usual, I did a Search on the Internet, for Free Photo Stock, for Buildings. I chose for the First Painting, for the Background, the Eiffel Tower, Paris. For the Illustration Part, I searched, Free Photo Stock, People, in order to Place over the Photo, of the Building. I came up with a Person’s Hands in the Formation of A Heart. I thought Excellent, Perfect for Paris, the City of Love. Remember I did not use the Illustration Software, that Kanga Talks about, in Her Article, presented to You in This Blog. No I did the Traditional Way, I drew the Background first, and Coloured in the Background, of the Building and the Sky, Trees, with Acrylic Paints. Then I Completed the Illustration, with Watercolours.

In This Painting, I chose Venice, from Free Photo Stock, for the Buildings, Paintings Background. I searched, Free Photo Stock, People for the Top Layer for Illustration. I decided to Use this Model, holding a Ball of the World, I thought so Appropriate to Venice, which is the City of Sighs. The Background was Coloured in Acrylics and the Model was Coloured in Watercolours. Even Though the Traditional Method I used in Both Paintings, is not Realistic, but Impressionist, which is My Unique Style of Art Creating, the Artists Version. Not Kanga’s, Commercial Digital Version. Using the Photograph, onto Photo Shop Software, and then for Her Illustration method, would draw or Reimagine A Drawing or Place a Surreal Photo, over the Background. Whereas Her Work would be Classed as Commercial Art, and Used for Marketing Purposes, in Brochures and In, So many other, Commercial, Adds too.

The Eight Steps to Create Photographs, into Illustration.
Collect pictures-( Photos ) as a Habit. Kang says, you do not need an Expensive Camera or Smartphone. The Photo does not Need to be a Master piece, its for Reference. Take Photos of Buildings, Sunsets, or Random Objects. Keeping photos, Captures, Experiences and Memories in a Visual Form. When you look at These Photos, It Brings back the Moment, and these Can lead you to New and Exciting Ideas, for Your Newer Art Creations.
Muse on Idea and Themes–A Photo contains a Range of information, not Only limited too, Day, Weather and Location. We can guess the Relationship, between People and even their Emotions. We can Envision a Fun Story, that is Already in the Picture.
Test Composition–Working from the Photograph, helps us Test the Composition, before we Move, onto the Next stage, ( The sketch stage ). You can Zoom In and Out, Crop, the Photo, to find the Best formation. With a Good Reference photo, you can easily Figure out, how best to Compose the Illustration. From this Edited photography, you are Ready to Develop a sketch.
Inject Imagination–Drawing in Your Style you then, add some Imaginary elements and the Story in the Illustration comes Alive. Remember Pure Imagination serves as a way for Expression, for the Ideas, that you Aim to Portray through Your Illustration Art Creations…
Be Inspired by Colour–The colours in Photographs can be used Directly in your Art Creations. You can also, Edit the Colours to fit the Tones, and Warmth of the Mood, That you need to Create in the Art Illustration.
Add Light and Shadow–At the end of the Illustrating process, I look to find the Light and the Shadows shapes…The shadows have a Visual impact, on the Atmosphere of A Composition… It is the Light and shadows, that give the Depth and The Surreal feeling to an Illustration. By combining the Realistic background, Shadow and an Imaginative story or Situation, you give the Illustration, A Sense of An ALIVE REALITY.
Apply The Final Textures–The Final step, in the Illustration is adding the Final Brush Strokes and the Paper Texture. Kanga, adds a Scanned photo onto, Photoshop. Then changes the Layer blending Mode, to Multiply. By Adjusting the Colour Balance, You can Control how much Texture, you want to Show in the Art Creation.
Ask for Feedback–The Photographic elements, of the Composition background Colours and Other details, help to provide the Starting point, for Exploring Ideas. Then We can Say, that the Illustration, is an Excellent tool, for Communication. Which Then Encourages People to share their Stories, and to Feel Connected with Each other through this Newer, Art Creation… It is all A Newer Experience, which Recreates our Memories of Places, People, Situations, Emotions and Objects. ( Information in the CB, Creative Bloq, September 22, 2020. )
