I have a confession. Ever since moving into my new studio, I have been creatively challenged. Perhaps its because I finished a major sereies of work that took me a year to complete. Maybe its the blinding sunlight in the afternoon that changes the way I see color now. Perhaps its just overall distraction as I settle into my new environment. I don't know.
But I do have a strategy for dealing with this lack of inspiration.
Work in another media.
I have a new "sketchbook" that I'm having fun with. I'm spraying water-soluable inks through stencils and then adding water with a brush. On the left page, you can see he spray pattern and on the right, you can see what happens when you add some water.
It's fun, brainless, and poduces some surprising results. Maybe inspiration will come if I continue this process over the next week. I'll keep you posted!
