We all have comfortable and easy-to-fall-back-on areas in our lives.
This is true whether they are our favorite foods, clothes, friends or creativity.
And then there are the areas that we have more difficulty with. These can be activities we resist because we believe the stories we tell ourselves about how hard it is.
I have two examples to share with you.
Comfortable for me: a dry brush painting technique as a low pressure way to start a piece of work on a canvas or art journal.
Difficult for me: my belief that drawing hands is hard.
I can change my belief once I start practicing. Eventually I will acquire the ability to draw hands although I struggle with it right now.
What creativity beliefs trip you up?
