When you have been painting for weeks, and then you end up making a silly mistake, and your canvas gets destroyed.When the painting is destroyed some artist tend to leave the painting others just start a new one others just turn the mistake into a magical canvas.
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.
Having an art block is normal for every one the difference is how you are going to overcome the block and how you are going to be inspired to be able to start painting again.
The first thing to factor in is to ensure you take the block positively yes I mean you have to be happy about it, you may have painted canvases upon canvases for weeks, and you were doing great but all at once you end up hitting a brick wall this means that you did not become empty what it means is that it is time to start exploring new ideas and styles of painting this can be the break that you were waiting for.
If you are a professional artist the good thing to do first is to go to the local art community center by doing this you will have the ability to see what others are doing and come up with ideas
You can call your friends to an event, or you can park an event with your friends through this you can be able to overcome the art block by sketching what you find interesting on the way.
