Solving Creative Block & Other Problems? Wednesday Drawing Show

What are your drawing hang-ups? What stops you drawing? What makes you never finish a drawing?

Creative block? Fear of drawing? Perfectionism? Anxiety? Procrastination?

So many questions! We all have hang-ups and worries about drawing and creativity. Watch this week’s Wednesday Drawing Show and maybe we can come up with some ideas to help you break the blockage.

How to solve creative block

Drew from Florida emailed me yesterday, worried about being blocked creatively. He says he’s practicing drawing circles and things like that and hopes that something will happen soon. I think maybe he’s trying too hard. When the ideas dry up it’s easy to panic and try to force out new ideas, but it doesn’t work like that. You need to feed the brain and the creative furnace with new ideas and sights and experiences. Then, just relax. Brilliant ideas will suddenly hit you when you least expect them to and you will find yourself on a new and exciting path.

I thought I’d maybe try and introduce a wednesday advice/show thing again, but not as complicated as before. I really did run out of time doing the previous shows! If you’d like to ask me advice on drawing or art or anything creative, please do. Put them in the comments box below!
