Every person who has talent as a painter wishes to put down his or her creativity on canvas for eternity. One of the reasons is that everyone wishes to put their imagination down and give it a solid shape. Another reason that canvas is such a popular medium for painting is that it is durable, the quality and the overall look of the painting.  Some artists are known to experiment with multiple canvas painting ideas.

But when it comes to painting one needs to have ideas and subjects to paint. Some ideas for painting are as follows:

  • Abstract ideas of something that is found in nature like an animal or bird. You can create a visual version of how you perceive a particular thing
  • You can use your painting to tell a story along with characters and some events in a pictorial way
  • You could draw the landscape around you like natural scenery or even a garden.
  • You can paint an interior setting like daily objects from your life like a scene from the bedroom from an angle or even your living area
  • You can even keep on clicking on pictures on a random basis  so that you can draw on them for inspiration.

When it comes to ideas for what to paint on canvas, the first thing that will aid you is your imagination. But sometimes even our imagination can let us down and we need some stimuli to get the juices of creativity flowing. For this you need to be constantly on the lookout for things in nature and another thing that helps in this regard is the study of light. The same things look different when viewed in different lights. This is something that you can observe and record with the help of a camera so that you can use it for inspiration.
