I’m not a creative person at all.
And no, I’m not kidding.
Yesterday I was about to start this Urdu novel but then I was suddenly struck with a creative idea. More like an art idea. So I obviously got up and searched for all the pens, pencils, paints and brushes (any artsy thing I could find tbh). And surprisingly, it didn’t take me a lot of time to find them since I don’t use them a lot. I opened the box of water colours which was obviously really dusty (I don’t paint a lot) Anyway, I got my paint brushes, paints and everything I needed and then I started to paint.
Let me tell you why I don’t paint:
- I’m not creative (already mentioned duh)
- I don’t know how to make abstract or galaxy kinda art (which I love!) and I tried by the way. And failed miserably.
- I’m just not creative. I don’t know how to mix colours and all kinda stuff that most creative people do.
But that doesn’t mean I’m not good at painting and drawing/sketching. I’m mediocre but I’m not the worst. I used to paint many of the charts for my class/assignments in School.
(Ironically, my best friend is the most creative person I know)
So I’m obsessed with this quote:
“Still, the image haunted his dreams throughout the night: a lovely girl gazing at the stars, and the stars who gazed back.”
(Throne of Glass)
And I wanted to paint something that goes with it. I had a really pretty picture in my mind but after trying 11 times approx I couldn’t make it (not a shock). Anyhow, I started painting the page blue and after I was done with more than the half of the page, I was struck with another idea (I know! 2 ideas in just one day?! so unlike me) so I painted the sides with purple (my favourite colour) and the effect turned out to be good (not how I imagined it to be). At least I think it does.
I know it’s REALLY messy but it was a little success for me to be honest. My paintings never turned out be good and this one was. I’m so happy.
Are you good at painting/sketching? Are you a creative person? What do you think of my art? Why do I have so many questions to ask?
