I love creating. I love making beautiful things and working with my hands. With the current shutdown, I was having a hard time figuring out how to create. I don't have much for art supplies in my home, and I wasn't allowed to shoot people in my home studio...thankfully, webcam sessions came along. Now, I'm shooting all the time, and because these are different than my standard sessions, I'm editing them in totally different ways. I feel like an artist again. Here are some shots from my latest webcam session with a boudoir babe in Ohio.
Maybe you're in the same boat. You want to create. You're itching to make something new, but you don't have much on hand. I did some digging and I found free, online resources to help you get creative with things you probably have around your house or apartment.
Mandala Coloring Pages
Work on your color theory, bust out the markers and crayons, and get to coloring! Coloring is relaxing and a great way to practice mindful meditation, along with giving you a creative outlet. All you need is a printer and something to color with. Here are a ton of free mandala coloring pages.
Bling Contour Drawing
Without looking at your paper, draw any object, such as your own hand, in one continuous line without lifting your hand from the page. Grab a partner and do simultaneous blind contour portraits of each other. All you need is paper and a pencil/pen. These are super fun to do! You can also lift your pencil from the paper, like this artist does:
Recreate a Famous Painting with What You Have at Home
Museums have challenged us to recreate famous paintings with clothes, furniture and decor we have at home. I've seen this on Instagram, and people are getting creative! I'm shook by how accurate some of these recreations are. If you've got time, give it a whirl! This will challenge you to think outside of the box and view your stuff in a new way.
I hope these ideas helped! I hope you're staying creative and making dope art. If you want to make art with me with a webcam session, you can book it HERE.
