: Make art from music inspired

01-08-2016, 03:26 AM
Hello guys, i'm new here. And i really want to talk about my problem about art. I am very much inspired with music, i feel very emotional when i hear some music, and i would really love to put what i feel and what i hear into art. The problem is, whenever i get pumped and excited to make new art (while listening to music), somehow i got stuck, i just got nothing, i just hold my pencil and nothing coming out. It's very frustrating, because i can actually imagine some scene from things i heard, but i just can't put it into paper or anything.

Do you guys feel like that too? How do you overcome this problem?
Thank you tho :vs-kiss:

Welcome to the forum.

I personally find I can't bring on or consciously invoke any inspiration. It just hits me like a voice whispering in my head "You want to paint a Daffodil today".

I often listen to music when I paint. Light Classical type music but I don't use it to get inspired. Everyone has their own methods.

Hello, welcome.

Have you done much drawing or painting? Or is art new to you? If you are new to art, or haven't done any in a long time, you may want to start with the basics. We have very helpful artists here that will help with suggestions.

For me I very rarely pull anything from my head. I need a model of some type, photo, scene, doesn't even need to be exactly what I am drawing it just needs to give me guidelines or a starting point per se.

Oh yeah, at times I get an idea in my mind for a painting and I want to sketch it out but I just can't make it happen, really frustrating when nothing seems to come out on paper.
