A blank page can radiate a lot of patterns and designs to somebody who has a keen eye for painting. It may mean peace for one artist, solace for another artist, a gloomy face for the third artist, a new born baby for the forth artist and so on. However, lost in the midst of all these thoughts, an artist generally may take a lot of time in order to decide what he or she should paint on a blank page. We bring to you some of the most common themes that can help you to decide on a wonderful pattern, design or thought to bring down on a piece of paper with colors.
These painting designs and patterns have been chosen from one of the most common themes around us, but these themes are so common and around us all the time that we fail to derive any inspiration from them. Once you catch hold of one design and thought and start delivering it on paper, you will see that one thought gives rise to another and soon, you will find yourself flooded with a lot of thoughts. You can then start painting one after the other and see yourself creating a lot of designs.
Once you get a thought process from such themes, you can also tweak them a bit to derive more thoughts out of them and creating wonderful paintings with unique designs and themes. Here are some very unique and thought-evoking themes for paintings.
Your everyday environment and objects: Have you ever visited an art gallery. Visit an art gallery and you will find that some of the best and the most beautiful paintings are based on what you see every day in your surroundings and lives. There are artists who derive inspiration from even a small mug or a fruit lying in front of them. Some have also casted beautiful paintings from just a potted plant in the balcony to an antique piece placed on a side table. The artificial decorative flowers, your pet dog, a road scene, rain, a family photo, kitchen utensils, wardrobe, etc., anything can get a wonderful thought in your mind, which if nurtured properly can lead to unique and wonderful designs on the paper.
A piece of picture or an old portrait: you may have an old picture in the house which is now kept in the store room simply because it does not suit your present life style and way of living. What to do then? Yes, you are right! Such pictures can be great inspirations for you. Take any such old picture, maybe of an old mud house, a farmer’s livelihood, an old celebrity’s picture, let your mind tweak and try all possibilities of add a new touch to the picture and painting it again and give it your best shot. You may want to change the dress, jewelry, expressions of the old celebrity with the new look of today’s actresses. And believe it, what you display as the end result of all these efforts will be just wonderful. You will be surprised to see that everyone who sees that picture will not be content praising your skills for hours and hours together.
Your nature: Some truly amazing pictures have also been made keeping nature and our mother Earth in mind. Our nature offers us some of the best themes to be converted in pictures, tress, waterfalls, meadows, lakes, oceans, mountains, plateaus, volcanoes, animals, etc. can be brought onto a piece of paper in many ways and will help in creating wonderful painting designs.
