The Reason Why You Might Be Unhappy With Your Art // Painting Out Loud

  • Published on May 11, 2019
  • Hey guys! Have you ever felt like you just feel unhappy and unsatisfied with your but you can't really figure out why? In today’s paint with me video I wanted to talk about something that has been on my mind lately while we paint together and maybe you can relate with some of the things I’m about to share with you? I talk about my art, feeling disconnected to my art and finding back into painting and creating art that inspires me! I really hope you enjoy the food for thoughts and the oil painting time lapse!

    Happy Saturday everyone! I felt like doing another painting out loud video because I wanted to share something with you guys that I was going through, how I discovered what was wrong and how I decided to deal with it! I really hope this video can help some of you guys!

      I love everything about this video. I don't post my art online but I was feeling lost for so long because of everything I was seeing online. I'm always looking for inspiration but it seems like everyone is doing the same things...except you! Your channel has been such a source of inspiration for me for at least a year now. I love that you not only try new things (and aren't afraid to publicly fail, a massive virtue in my opinion) but that you offer amazing insights about different mediums. You seem like such a cool person and I'm so happy when I see a new video posted to your channel. Keep doing what you love!

    This is such a beautiful video! I was starting to get unmotivated and I felt like I was in a position that I wasn't comfortable with my art anymore because I was doing it for others' enjoyment. Watching this video showed me an entirely new viewpoint and now I feel more inspired to create art that's for my own enjoyment and art that defines who I am and what I care about. Thank you for making this! That is a beautiful painting that you made by the way!!! :D

    I started crying as i watched this because I have had this issue for years. I haven't been able to create for myself in a very long time and its made me so unhappy with everything i painted, I lost the sight of why i was doing it and why i spent all that energy and money going to art school. I know a big part was because i wanted to please my parents who were proud of my gift but it was the worst reason to go... that and my hometown looked down on art and said it was a waste of time and money and you'll never amount to anything taking such a risky route. This video has lit a fire and I am so happy and grateful i found this at just the right time i needed. Thank you for your wonderful wisdom

    This video could not have come at a better time, I've been unhappy with my art for a long time and strangely resistant to admit why. I've watched a lot of videos but somehow yours was the one that clicked in my mind. I actually teared up a little thinking of the kind of art I want to make and what I have actually been making in comparison. Thank you for this video, I actually bookmarked it so I can watch it again, and again, and again, when I'm feeling stuck.

    This is so important! I think it's vital for artists to keep creating art just for their own sense of joy and fulfillment, even if nobody else ever sees it.

    awe thank you for considering what other people would like, and really you are expressing every single art you make in your own amazing way and you have this amazing power to make your viewers understand not just how to make the artwork you showed but inspire them to make their own! I am proud of every single art you make!

    Yeah :(
    I'm actually still in learning process... Even when im on practice, sometimes I dont even like the results because I care about the proportion too much and keep comparing my own (not that good) drawings to drawings on social media and keep thinking on how people gonna like my art. Sometimes I felt dissapointed after drawing :(

    WHat should I do...

    • Quiiten X

      I think I'm just like you and the solution to this is to think that you can keep your art to yourself and make it be your escape way.
      I also want to post my art on social media!! I think we should all just be ourselves.
      This is a very bad explanation ;-;

    When I normally draw/paint I always feel unhappy with the outcome. I compare my art to other artists and sometimes forget my own style. I start to think other people's drawings are better than mine. I always have my art in the trash. Now I realize that my art is MINE and shouldn't be compared to others. ♥️

    I want to personally thank you for this video, I’m going through this phase now where my art feels like a burden on my shoulders rather than a hobby i enjoy like it used to be, your video timing was perfect, exactly what i needed, and for that i thank you very very much ❤️ i really really do. Have a blessed day.

    I know why I'm upset with my art (it's because it doesn't have the color or engery or creativity I want) but I can't seem to fix my problem. And I've tried and tried to make it how I want and to express with it but it still looks the some (bland and repeative).
    I'm starting to think I'm just not visual creative or something.

    Absolutely beautiful painting that reminds me of warmth and sunshine! Well done for standing your ground against the dreaded TVclip algorithms that seem to be causing misery across so much of TVclip and other platforms. Remain “in love” with your art Mako as it brings joy to so many!! Sending love from a hot and sunny Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 xx

    I must say thank you thank you thank you (x 3.14 times) so so so much Makoccino. When I watch your videos, I always get inspired. Arts is some what my escape from reality, it makes me fell free and happy . But my father said that my drawings and painting are very ugly then he tried to convince me to be a lawyer or a journalist in the future. After watching this video, I feel more confident about my art styles and such... I think that I shouldn't care what people said about my arts as long as it makes me happy and free... I don't know what to said anymore ... Those words are from deep down my heart ...
    P/s: Sorry for my spelling mistakes and grammar ... They are sucks and I am not good at English at school so ...

    All great thoughts...and most of the artists that are majorly famous now and decorate most museums were widely unpopular or not really appreciated in their own time, but they kept on doing their work because of their passion.

    很喜欢看你画画,安静的看,单纯的看,但是,明天我要去一个不允许看TVclip的地方去写生10天,这是10个画家朋友相约的计划,所以,10天后见。I like to see you painting, quiet watching, simple watching, but tomorrow I am going to a place where I can't watch TVclip for 10 days. This is a plan for 10 painter friends to meet, so I will see you 10 days later.

    I so agree with you. Social media is a good thing but it gives you the pressure to create for others and not for yourself and it can take away the desire to paint. Thank for sharing this with us and your painting it's absolutely gorgeous!! 😍😍😍 I love painting with a palette knife :)

    Hey mako! This was just beautiful, both the painting and the message. I really struggle with my art sometimes because I'm trying to create something people will want to see rather than something I want to paint. I'm really gonna try alot harder now to not listen to those voices in my head and make art I'm passionate about 🌺

    Good point. I get frustrated before that i can't finish my oil based painting in one month for me to post it. I forgot the essence why i really paint. I really paint because i love it. To tell my story
