This one is purely artistic quick tip. I have many artist friends, and family members. Most of these have one thing in common. They all have unique style that they are known for. And to simplify this advice, I will generalise a bit here. Most of their art is either dark (sad or oppressive), or light (happy or positive). I know people who are extremely good at very dark paintings, and I know people who are very good a light paintings. I know musicians who either write one or the other type of music. So which one are you
Today I ask you to get out of your comfort zone and do the opposite. If you only write love songs, why not write song about death? I know it sounds grim, but it is part of life. Or if you only paint very dark subject maters, why don’t you for once try something more positive? I am not asking you to change your style, but I am asking you to break out of your comfort zone. It is these (sometimes uncomfortable) places, where we can find what we truly are capable. If you don’t push your self, you will never find out.
