Art Inspiration - College Summer Homework by Kayleigh

Last summer, after my acceptance into college, I was given Summer homework. I had to choose a theme from a list, take at least 10-15 photographs, and create two contrasting A3 pieces based on that theme. I took most of the photographs in Cornwall and my contrast was between Landscapes and beaches. I also made it a contrast between media, using colouring pencils on one and paint on the other.

I chose Cornwall because ‘Home is where the heart is’ and in my heart, this is my home. I wanted to create something personal and beautiful. Cornwall is the most beautiful place I know and holds more inspiration than I could ever ask for.

My first piece was the painting of a beach. I blended my own style with that of Vincent Van Gogh. I used the photos I took on a walk in Cornwall. I pieced together the focal points and key elements of each picture to make one seaside painting. I copied the light and shade on the sea, as well as the rock. I like the colours in both of these aspects of the painting. I definitely prefer the top half of this image as it holds the most beauty.

My second piece was a drawing of a landscape in a similar style to the first. I like the energetic marks and the different greens in the landscape. The lonely house in the middle of nowhere adds an interesting element. It’s isolated yet curious. It conjures questions. Who lives there? What kind of life do they lead?

The open fields are full of stories. Endless tales that created every blade of grass, every leaf, every branch, every footprint. It’s the reason why I love Cornwall. On the outside it might be a little unfinished or vague, but if you use your imagination it can take you anywhere. There are endless possibilities. If you use something you love you can find infinite inspiration there.       

This was the kind of artwork I was proud of, there are things I like and things I dislike about these pieces, but I am proud of them regardless. Which is why I am recreating my final piece from college. In art courses there are restrictions that don’t allow you to express yourself. Art is supposed to be one of the most expressive and diverse topics in the world. The educational system tends to destroy that, they have a narrow-minded opinion of what art should look like. Being taught techniques is helpful, but being told that a project is too ambitious or that it doesn’t meet the curriculum without having enough guidance, can affect an artists’ creativity. I decided I didn’t want that to happen to me so I am recreating my piece in a way that makes me happy. Art should be something that satisfies the creator not anybody else.

If you ever think you’re not good enough, or that you can’t compete with someone else, keep trying and always stay true to your own beliefs. Some people change to suit others, if you stay true to your style and continue to do what makes you happy, you’re already doing better than any of them.

May all your creative wishes come true…
