Where to find inspiration?

Hello readers of ArcMel!

First of all I would like to congratulate everyone on the coming of spring! Today I would like to talk about life and inspiration. I noticed that my blog is visited not only by beginners but also by professional artists. (Please, leave some information about yourself in comments).

I am often asked about where to find inspiration, where I get the pictures, how I find time for writing, drawing and so on. So I will share my personal experience with you.

How one can manage to do everything and enjoy it?

1.     Dream!

What could you dream about? — A new phone, a trip around the world, or perhaps to draw a masterpiece? I dream to live near the Niagara Falls.

1 niagaraI use the picture of it as a screen saver and every time when I turn on my computer I see my dream and it inspires me to work. Inspiration comes itself and I forget about my daily problems!

2.     Write down all things you need to do. Cross out those that do not help to achieve your dream.!

Here is my list:

  • a)  Get up early (I didn’t succeed in it yet, but I’m trying);
  • b)  Do morning exercises;
  • c)   Don’t forget to eat;
  • d)   Go to the university;
  • e)   Have a walk;
  • f)    Meet with friends;
  • g)   Spend time in internet;
  • h)  Create a new lesson for ArcMel;
  • i)    Download torrents;
  • j)    Fight my laziness;
  • k)   Lie on the sofa dreaming to capture the universe;
  • l)     Draw for a new lesson or my favorite character;
  • m)  Publish the lesson and wait for your comments;

So in the evening you will feel tired and have no wish to do anything else. And what about art? Where to find time for it? Читать далее Where to find inspiration?
