Picasso said “When inspiration comes, let me find myself working!”
There are many ways to stimulate or seek inspiration. The first, as Picasso commented, is to work hard.
I find that drawing whatever helps to get inspiration. I always have a notebook and pencil in my bag when I go to a restaurant, a bar, or to the country, to the beach, taking a walk or taking a trip.
One summer I went to a small fishing village. In the morning I would go to the port by bicycle to look for the newspaper where I saw the fishermen mending their nets. They fascinated me and I took out my notebook to draw them.
On a trip to Venice I also took my watercolors and used the canal water to paint.
A camera can help stimulate inspiration.
I always carry a travel camera and use the photos when I return to the studio to create works.
