Being faced with a blank canvas can be very daunting. We’ve all been there! Sometimes no matter how hard we try, that space doesn’t get filled.
Sometimes we just need some inspiration! Of course, when I talk about a blank canvas, I mean any surface you intend to decorate with your artistry! It doesn’t have to be hand painted wine glasses like these. It could be any glass surface. Even your fishbowl!
This article aims to help you get started. To help you fill that blank canvas and get your creative juices flowing.
So without further ado…
3 Ideas To Help You Fill That Blank Canvas
Simple Glass Painting Designs
Some of you may probably have seen a lot of different glass art designs with intricate patterns, involving complicated designs and colors. At first, my tendency was to back off and push the idea of painting my very first art on a glass. But there’s no need to fret actually.There are simple designs and patterns of glass painting that a beginner, with not-so-much experience, can try. Even kids can start explore their creativity with these.
Tap Into The Emotions
Let your imagination run wild and think outside the box. Sometimes a good idea is staring you in the face. Why not look at the object you want to paint and see how you can tap into the emotions connected with the object. These glasses are a great example of this by making full use of the sort of emotions you might feel at the end of a long day.
Injecting some humour into your style will go a very long way and if you’re stuck for ideas, you can always ask our friends or family to help you along your way.
