In childhood, the child does not think about why and what to draw. Drawing, he processes his life experience, transferring it to paper, and, thereby, comprehends it and develops.
To Draw Every Day: 11 Simple Ideas
With age, finding ideas becomes more and more difficult … We are distracted by everyday activities, we stop hearing ourselves, our inner world. It is especially difficult in the beginning when you only embark on the path of knowing yourself as an artist.
To draw well, you need to draw daily. But where to get this inspiration?
Here are some ideas on how and what to draw every day.
What to Draw? 11 Ideas for Daily Drawing
1. Go through the archives of your drawings and sketches.
The simplest thing is to open a folder with your old drawings and review them. What is not finished in them? Where did the hitch occur? Take a fresh look at the drawing. Think about how to refine or rewrite it.
Also, immersion in past drawings will plunge into you the emotions that you experienced before. This may again inspire your creative muse. Perhaps based on the old idea a new one will arise … And then another picture will be born.
2. Draw something from nature.
Take a look around the house: walls, furniture, home decoration, potted plants, souvenirs brought from trips that store your memories. What is the eye caught on?
Draw one object. You can draw other objects to it, draw a background.
As a result, your drawing can turn out to be very atmospheric, keeping the warmth of the house, your thoughts, and memories
3. Draw an abstract combination of spots.
Unleash your imagination, imagine yourself a creator and get the most out of the play of color, from how the paint flows and mixes, what new shapes and shades you observe. Cast aside doubts and fears. Do it! This is great color therapy.
Depict your day, your mood, fix it in color.
4. Create a hand-drawn cooking recipe.
The cooking process itself can be very creative. And if you also transfer it to paper … Write down your culinary ideas, make beautiful pictures for them, create your unique recipe books. In the future, this will inspire you to continue to create cooking and drawing.
5. Draw a nice little thing for friends or family members.
It can be a card for the holiday – for the birthday, for the New Year, for March 8, or the day of all lovers. Or just a cute impromptu for no reason …
Getting a handmade postcard in the age of emails is unusual. Such gestures are always very pleasant. Gratitude emotions received in return will surely give you inspiration for the continuation of the creative process.
6. Practice quick sketches.
Draw people and animals using sketchy anatomical figures of humans and animals.
7. Practice creating monotypes.
Learn to create monotypes. This will allow you to create without initially thinking about the plot. Monotype will do it for you.
Connect the imagination! Experiment! A monotype print will give you many opportunities for spontaneous decisions. View the image in the spots and streaks that have appeared. And draw some spots to help the viewer see this image.
8. Draw a graphic drawing.
Do you like to draw with a simple pencil or in black and white? Then try yourself on the schedule! This can be drawing a spot with a further drawing of details with a pencil, helium pen, ink or marker.
Or maybe you will first make any drawing graphically, and then add it to the background, add volume to the details, fill it, fill it with fancy patterns, lines and scatter the splash spots.
9. Draw on the travel sketchbook.
Going on a trip? Take along a small sketching album!
A notebook filled with impressions and drawings (as well as booklets, tickets, checks, napkins … and other “tourist garbage”) will be no less valuable memory than an album with photographs.
10. Wander around the sites of your favorite artists.
Examine their paintings, find what catches, touches the soul. Compare different techniques, try to imagine how this or that painting was written, what the artist felt, what he wanted to say, how he saw the world while working.
Look at your favorite painting by your favorite artist and try to do something similar. Or just copy a piece of the picture to learn the technique, repeat it as you understand.
This will enrich your experience with new techniques, and perhaps you will find something of your own in this process and will continue to use the new method when writing your masterpieces.
11. Choose a topic at random
To boost your imagination, you can simply select a random word or phrase. I usually use my favorite book for this.
Or guess the number from 1 to 50 and find the answer in my collection:
- Red dress
- An unusual look at an ordinary thing
- A look into the future
- Inhabitants of cupboards
- The tablecloth wasn’t enough …
- Line flexibility
- Here is such a love …
- Three sisters
- Oh, who is this?
- Our smaller brothers
- A new look at an ice cream
- The castle
- Tea time
- Planet of coffee
- The world of books
- The magic of the spiral
- Smile of childhood
- Grandma’s joy
- Lucky …
- In the most interesting place …
- The beauty of the flower
- Here and there
- In the night
- The full moon
- The face in the photo
- Favorite drink
- Lying around…
- The epicenter of fun
- Sea distance
- Behind the fence
- Fragrant herbs
- Cherry compote
Summing up, I want to say to everyone who has embarked on the path of creativity – do not despair and do not doubt; It’s easy to create, developing yourself, your creative imagination every day. The main thing is to understand that inspiration comes in practice, in everyday work.
Good luck with your career!
