5 Tips how to Improve Your Artwork

Artists are always striving to improve their craft, just like any other professional.  It doesn’t matter what kind of art you are skilled at (painting, graphic design, sculpture, jewelry making, etc.), you want to get better at the skill.

Here are 5 tips that you can implement today to help you improve your art.

Get inspired by your surroundings:

We are a product of our environment so that is why it is important to keep an art space where you feel inspired to create.  You cannot perform at your best if your environment is dark and cluttered, so clean and organize your creative space at the end of each workday.  Wash your brushes, organize loose papers, and always use good lighting.

Have a concept in mind:

All art begins with an idea.  Artists like Jon Rafman always has a concept in mind before he creates his art installations.  Jon Rafman, an artist, has been creating art for over two decades.  Having a concept or idea will help the artist express how something will be executed. An artist without an idea is like a traveler without a map.

Keep it simple:

Sure, as an artist, you might have a complex vision that you are eager to execute.  But, if you feel overwhelmed by the prospect of carrying out the idea or you don’t know where to begin, keep it simple.  Paintings with too much clutter will only distract the viewer and make it difficult to identify the subject. Focus on the primary objects and the rest will come.  For instance, Flag is one of the famous paintings by artist Jasper Johns.

Use rhythm:

Rhythm, when it is found in art, is made whenever movements flow into a repeated pattern. You can find these patterns in photography, sculpture, realism, abstract art, and more. Artists can strategically use rhythm to move the viewer’s eye throughout the work of art using color patterns, texture, and application of paint.  It’s almost like applying energy to the art.


Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is worthy artwork.  Dedication, determination, and a desire to get better are important factors to the success of any artist. Of course, every artist progresses at their own pace. Be patient and be sure to celebrate your artistic improvements and achievements.
