Creative Art - Ideas to draw and paint

Curious - Have you ever wanted to draw, paint for fun and not sure where to start.

Here are a few ideas

  • Look through your photographs

  • Select an element to draw

  • A piece of fruit

  • A ornament

  • Flowers

  • Look online for images

  • Sit in your garden

  • A table or chair

Debbie's Creative Corner Lets take the first idea looking through your photographs.

One of my hobbies is to walk and take photographs of the things that interest me along the way. It can be anything from flowers in a garden, a scenic view, animals and birds, architectural buildings whatever you like. Now that we are staying home and staying safe look back through your pictures for inspiration and ideas. I came across a photo I had taken of Cannon Hall church window. The great thing is it doesn't matter if your drawing is perfect, the aim is to draw your own unique style. Adapt the picture and draw the parts you like. Its the pleasure that you get from having a go that matters the most. Gary my Art tutor always advises his students to have a go, if you dont like a sketch rub it out or draw again. "Sometimes mistakes can turn into happy mistakes on the final picture" and this has been proven to us all many times.

Here is an examples of my own work this weekend.
