your

own

style

is if that's you in this video I'm gonna give you the main

three

tips

for finding

your

own

artist

ic

style

so when it's time to sit down and paint something for a job or for

your

self even you can have the confidence to lay paint on paper or to take that photo with

your

own

artist

ic

style

in mind so tip number one for finding

your

artist

ic

style

is to copy the work of people who inspire you now if you're clutching

your

pearls right now and you're shocked but I just said that hear me out okay there's an obvious time that copying is okay and then there's an obvious time that copying other people's work is not okay if you're replicating somebody's work and you're using it in any sales promotion or product and you're making money off of it or marketing it talking about it as

your

own and not referencing that you're inspired by this or that person in this painting or for whatever it is then that's wrong but when you're first starting out and you are just learning the ropes and trying to develop

your

muscle memory copying other people's work is absolutely necessary for...
three tips on developing your style as an artist

developing

technique and muscle memory if you think about it in terms of learning it guitar for example so many brand new guitarists are playing stairway to heaven the riff to stairway to heaven over and over again driving their parents I'm saying probably and same thing with any

artist

this is taught in art school in college I didn't go to art school but I I know just from other friends that have there are classes that are specifically you know replicating masters artwork like van Gogh and Monet and Degas just to develop the

artist

s muscle memory and technique and so copying is okay in that sphere but you do want to be careful that you're not copying for too long and you're definitely not copying someone's work claiming it as

your

own and earning money from that work or promoting it in some sort of way as

your

up so that's tip number one tip number two is obvious and straightforward but it's to practice

your

little booty off you've got to got to got to pour

your

self into this craft or hobby or whatever you're learning in order to really amp

your

levels up and for

your

levels up but to actually develop the muscle memory and see results in

your

practice and so if you're just starting and you're looking at the YouTube channels or the people on Instagram and you're seeing that they have this unique look to their work or how did they learn how to paint this or that in that

style

they had a lot of practice under their belt and...
three tips on developing your style as an artist
unfortunately for you looking at people and feeling like shoot why don't why doesn't my work look like that yet it's hard to see especially on social media the behind the scenes and the years worth of work that they've poured into their craft to develop that muscle memory and develop their own

style

and so you got to remember that every

artist

every professional this or that musician whatever was once a beginner and they had to practice their booty off in order to master their craft and develop their

style

so you will have to do that to practice

your

booty off and then my final tip tip number

three

is to make time to play so for the longest time when I started my career as a creative as an

artist

this was eight years ago I'd probably say about four two to

three

years I focused mainly on one thing that I could do and that was floral watercolor with in watercolor so floral watercolor and that was it I didn't really branch out and paint things like portraits or landscapes because I was so focused on the work that was coming in and what I could do that I didn't think to go outside of that but I'm encouraging you whether you have client work or products that you're designing or even if you don't have any source of income yet through

your

creativity try new things so if you're known for floral watercolor let's I and that's all you do you need you're gonna get

your

self into these creative ruts and you're gonna feel burnt...

out and kind of stuck and so if you really want to continue to develop and hone in

your

skills and find

your

style

you need to branch out and try new things because you may pick up something from even from doing something outside of

your

industry like maybe doing ceramics for the first time or knitting or weaving whatever that you want to implement into

your

style

through painting or through writing songs or whatever so always be trying new things it constantly is opening

your

eyes to new inspirations and so I hope you found these
