Ink-spirational Creativity Tip: Listening to your Inner Creative Ping

Ever create a drawing or painting and have an inner pinging about  what it would like like if you had used a different medium, technique, or style.  This happened to me as I was working on the "Tropical Church Building" art piece.

For me an essential part of the creative process is listen to your inner voice -- your inner creative ping.  It can certainly take you on wondrous journeys.  Creativity is about being playful and curious. Don't deny what your creative gut is telling you.

 What do you have to lose if you don't act on your inner creative ping?

Well, I guess you will never know, unless you give it a try.   🙂

Peace and Live Creatively!

Below are the steps on how I went from starting with a pastel image and ended up with a colored pencil drawing.
