When you have been painting for weeks, and then you end up making a silly mistake, and your canvas gets destroyed.Most of the artist tend to leave the art others to tend to start the painting afresh and others just turn the lemon to lemonade this means that they can be able to turn the mistake into a masterpiece.
If you happen to be using watercolors and end up destroying your canvas you can rectify the mistake by using water spray. It may sound bogus but the only way to ensure that the painting is not destroyed in general to make sure that you cover the rest of the canvas with a masking tape to ensure that there is no right painting that is destroyed.
You may also want to use a pestle if you’re not comfortable with the water spray the pestle is mostly used to cover huge areas that have been overworked, and they make the areas appear as if they were freshly done and no much work was done on the part of the painting.
Being an artist and having an art block is very normal the only thing that makes a unique artist is how you overcome the art block.
When you get an art block, and you can’t be able to paint the first thing is to take it positively by doing this you can be able to come up with new ways and come out of your cocoon of art blockage.
You can beat your art block by visiting local art centers and being inspired to have new ideas through what you see.
The other thing you can do is call your friends to go to an event like hiking and come up with sketches that inspire you during the journey or even try sketching your surrounding this will help you get rid of the art block.
The other thing is calling a fellow artist to your studio and let the artiste critique you hence he can help you improve first and then during the improvement you might find some inspiration that may lead you to paint new canvases.
Going to exhibitions is another way of overcoming the art block this is because you are able to see what people are painting and you can get new ideas from the art also by talking to the artist in the exhibitions may help you get inspired to paint new things.
Sometimes artist block may be due to boredom or just seeing the canvas for long you can just have a break and have a distraction like going swimming or playing football after some time you will be able to overcome the block.
