Inspiration The art of annika

Where do I get my inspiration from?
It can be absolutely anything that crosses my path.
I love reading books

Reading books makes me get new ideas and I get more creative. Different authors inspires me in different ways.

Some authors stays in my heart forever.
Loié Fuller, "The Serpentine Dance"

These stunning pictures of Loié Fuller makes me want to paint movement!

Painting dancers is hard, but try to catch the movement anyway.
Inspired by Kelly McKernan

Other artists is such an inspiration. Some of them shares their technics and you can learn a lot from that.

Watching other artists on youtube is a treasure.
Meditate every day

Meditation is like a step into your secret garden. You turn of all noise and just let your thoughts flow.

When your heart speaks, take good notes.
Listen to your intuition, take notes, save pictures and keep sketching!

Arcitecture, people, adventures, books, movies, music, nature, art.....

Drawing in Pisa
Casa Museo Modernista (Novelda, Spain)

I am not very good at drawing houses, but I always save a picture of the houses that I want to draw. Some day they might come in handy.

Architecture fascinates me.
Beautiful Laxsjøen (Sweden)

Go out for a walk and just breath. Try to use all of your senses and take the time to look at every little detail on our magical earth.

Nature is always there for you.
Beautiful patterns in the lake, light and shadow.
