Being an artist takes not only patience, but concentration. If you're surrounded by loud noises and disruptions then you won't be able to create a masterpiece, and to create a masterpiece, you need consentration. Here are some tips to stay concentrated on your art.
-MUSIC- Play a song on your CD player or Pandora or iPod or whatever you use to listen to music. You can get great inspiration out of a song and with music playing, you won't be able to hear a thing.
-SOUND EFFECTS- If music isn't enough, try sound effects. Like sounds of a storm or rain shower or ocean. They're calming and sooth the senses.
-CLOSE YOUR DOOR- If your door is open, then you will have no concentration. Someone can easily walk in without knocking or the sounds of crazy shananigans will flood in like water. Closing your door will prevent any disruptions.
-GO OUTSIDE- If you can't get any peace inside, try going outside. It's more quiet than anything inside. But of course, if it's cold or rainy or snowy, then going outside to draw might not be a good idea.
-MEDITATE- Find your center and focus on your mind. Try not to say "oooommmm," because that's noise. Just listen to the enviornment, take deep breaths, and drown out all obnoxious sounds like car horns and screaming kids. If you're not outside, close your door and play sound effects such as a forest or ocean or storm. It's very relaxing.
Hope these tips help you on your path to becoming an artist!
