Do you feel creative but are put off by the daunting task of painting? Then there is good news for you! There are many ways to get started and gain confidence in your artistic abilities. You can use them as a starting point, and slowly you will be proudly displaying your masterpieces in your home.

Everyone has an artist hidden inside them, and they need the opportunity to let out. It is also a great skill that comes in handy when you need to redecorate your space. We have put together a list of projects that will help you unleash your creative side and heal with painting's therapeutic powers.

Create Abstract Art

There are no mistakes when it comes to abstract art because it all depends on an individual's perspective. It is easy for beginners to create their abstracts by following short video tutorials online. For an abstract painting, you can choose your colors and match them with the room's color scheme in which you plan on hanging the painting. A great technique for beginners is to leave the background blank and paint abstract shapes and lines using the selected color scheme.

Paint Your Favorite Quote

If you are at a loss for ideas on what to paint, you can use that blank canvas to paint on your favorite quote. Quotations require simple brush strokes and can be done on a solid color or with embellishments in the background. If you are feeling brave, try your hand at calligraphy, but block letters work well. Make sure the quote is memorable and would look good hanging in the room.

Decorate Rocks

Not all painting needs to take place on the canvas, and there are many things out there that you can decorate. Rocks are one of those things, and the best part is they are usually free! Smooth and flat rocks are ideally the best ones with which to start. Since rocks come in irregular shapes, they can inspire you to create unusual art. You can get as creative as you like and choose whatever medium you want to paint in. Some of the options include acrylic paints, alcohol inks, marker pens, and chalks.

Switch to Diamonds

Painting is a form of therapy that also helps build up our ability to focus on a task. Paint by number kits is one way everyone can explore their artistic abilities. These kits are now available in the Painting with Diamonds Art, too, and you can recreate the works of professionals such as Van Gogh and Picasso. The work of art will glitter in the light, and it is a refreshing change from the traditional paints. It is never to late to call yourself an artist, and with the paint by numbers kit, you can take the first step. 

Give Your Pots a Makeover

Do you love your indoor plants, but do not like the drab terracotta pots they come in? Then you can revamp them using your paint palette. Add color to your outdoor or indoor garden by painting the pots with creative designs. You can turn them into a matching set or paint a new masterpiece onto each one. 

These pots also make a great gift for someone else, especially if you are going to a housewarming party. You can search for ideas and patterns online or use your creativity to create one on your own. There are so many possibilities, and it is a budget-friendly alternative to buying expensive ceramic pots.
