Get in a painting routine and stick to it.
Painters paint, every day.
Paint every day and you will get better at it.
Paint what you love.
If your work is boring to you, it will be boring to others.
Study about painting when you are not painting
Look at other peoples painting to see how they view subjects.
Know who your influences are
Always be ready to record a new idea for use later through sketching, photography, etc.
Keep an open mind and be willing to try new things.
Always challenge yourself.
Vary your routines from time to time to stay fresh.
Stop reading this and go paint!
