Stuck with what to paint? Here are 5 acrylic painting ideas for inspiration!

Updated: Jul 21, 2022

If you paint often during the week, it's likely that you'll run out of ideas on some days. I mean, I understand it as well, so I'm fully aware of the situation.

So, today, I'm going to help you break through that creativity block by providing you with five different painting ideas to get you started.

1. Paint your room or look at pictures of bedrooms on the internet for ideas

There's something about painting a room that brings out an aesthetic, regardless of how messy or tidy it is. Take, for example, Van Gogh's bedroom painting. I'm sure you felt the same way when you first saw it, didn't you? So go ahead, take pictures of your room, or even ask a friend to send you theirs and start painting!

2. Paint a horse.. or even a unicorn

It's a wonderful animal to draw, and it comes in a variety of colors to choose from. Is it a spirit animal for you? Even better! Do you prefer magical images to realistic ones? You can even paint a unicorn. In any case, horses are frequently painted animals for a reason, so why not give it a try while adding your own personal touch?

3. Paint koi fish

The koi, according to wiki, is a Japanese symbol of good luck, wealth, and fortune, as well as perseverance in the face of misfortune. Apart from that, it's a lovely fish to paint on canvas. When you mix it with some waterlilies, you get a synthesis, similar to a Monet painting. So what are you waiting for?

4. Paint some ballerinas

Our motto here should be, do it like Degas. He was a famous oil painter that used to paint ballerinas. Degas was obsessed by the art of classical ballet, because to him it said something about the human condition. Ballerinas will not only keep you interested if you want to study anatomy, but I am confident you will be intrigued by the movement on ballerinas in your painting.

5. Paint a garden

We discussed painting a bedroom, but painting a garden can provide you with a wide range of cozy feels. Simply choose from the many photo references available on the internet and get started. Another option is to paint a garden that you captured yourself to make it feel more personal. The choices are many, and they are waiting for you!

So there you have it, some painting ideas that you can utilize whenever you want to get started. Remember that inspiration comes to you when you're working, not while you're sitting around waiting for it to happen. Get your paintbrushes, set up your workspace, and begin painting. The rest will be revealed later.
