Bill Creevy offers advice on dealing with artist’s block

Bill Creevy’s Advice

Oh my gosh, I thought I’d already posted this blog and video but found it sitting in drafts. And it’s way too good to waste.

So here it is, a very short video I made at IAPS (International Association of Pastel Societies) Convention last June. I asked Bill Creevy, one of my pastel heroes, what to do if you have artist’s block. This is his great advice. (If the video doesn’t show up in the post when you are viewing it, click here.)

 

 

Here is some of Bill’s fabulous work. Look at that texture! Look at that light! Look at that composition!

Have you ever had artist’s block? What do you do to overcome it? I’d love to hear!

 

And if you don’t have Bill Creevy’s book, The Pastel Book, then get it! It’s packed full of interesting ideas. His was one of the first books I bought on pastels and boy was it an eye-opener! I’ll talk more about his book in a future blog.
