If ever you feel stuck creatively, altering your viewpoint can help shake things up, offer a new insight, and get the energy flowing again. If you find yourself running up against the same challenges, rather than just approaching it in the same way, try out a new one. You could very well be pleasantly surprised by the results. In fact, a new perspective can simply be getting someone's outside opinion or advice. It's a tool for both art and personal life, and really aids with understanding people who might otherwise seem so strange. A rigid way of looking at things is not a strong one, just stubborn.
I think the following pictures show the concept rather well.
|Perspective 1 - a quick snapshot shows off the leaves, but looks rather bland|
|Perspective 2 - a closer look and skewed angle brings more energy to it|
|Perspective 3 - a view from above creates a bold visual statement|
So, how can you apply this concept immediately to something in your art or life?
Try it out in a variety of ways, and share the results!
