15 Painting Ideas for Nature Lovers
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, / There is a rapture on the lonely shore, / There is society, where none intrudes, / By the deep sea, and music in its roar: / I love not man the less, but Nature more. - Lord Bryon
Amidst the hustle and the hurry of life, some of us find refuge and comfort in the wonders of nature. Sitting in the shade or going for a nature walk are all some of the ways we take time off for ourselves, but what about art?
What happens when we transfer our love of the world and all its beauty into our art?
Here are some works we absolutely love, and we hope you’ll find inspiration in these pieces to create some of your own the next time you paint!
1. Petals and Pink Galore
Pink flowers are a staple for nature lovers, no matter the flower species. We absolutely love the blending and colours in this one.
2. Go Tell It On The Mountain
Just because the geographical make-up of Singapore doesn’t provide many opportunities for mountain-climbing or watching, it does not mean you cannot express your love for mountains on your tote bags! So if you’re a mountain-lover, go tell it on the mountains.
Trees are hard not to notice in our Garden City. Which ones are your favourite? Don’t tell us, paint it and show us!
4. Twinning Day/ Nightscapes
Got a best friend or partner whom you love to bits and who is the yin to your yang, the night to your day, or vice versa? Celebrate this person by bringing them down and paint your own individual piece of art each, and better still, paint a diptych (two-part work of art) together!
5. Sunrises and Sunsets
You have to agree with us that dawn and dusk are the most beautiful parts of the day. But hey, you know what’s better? That’s right. Capturing that beauty on your tote bags.
6. What's a Flower's Best Friend?
So what’s a flower’s best friend? Insects. Dragonflies, butterflies, bees, you name it, they need it for pollination. Get creative!
7. True Blue Colours
Here’s a really beautiful close-up of a blue flower amidst a stunning yellow-orangish background. We know blue flowers aren’t that common, but anything is possible when you let your imagination take flight.
8. Fifth Waves
It could be your favourite American science-fiction film, it could also be the fifth wave that comes crashing onto the shore that steals your heart. As long as you paint it, wear it around, and let us know.
9. Northen Lights
The Northern Lights is still recognised today as one of the world’s most beautiful phenomena. Not all of us have been lucky enough to travel halfway across the world to see the Northern Lights so if you have, paint it for us. Evergreen trees, glaciers, stars, sky — we want to see everything!
10. The Seasons: Autumn
Autumn is probably one of the most beautiful seasons in the world. Add a little dazzle to your canvas with stunning shades of red, gold, and orange!
11. The Seasons: Winter
The serenity of winter is the reason most of us book our holiday trips at the end of the year during the Christmas holidays. If this is your favourite season or time of year, carry it around with you on your own unique tote bag.
12. The Seasons: Spring
If hope is what you need, sometimes you do not have to find it. Sometimes you find that it is inside you all along. And sometimes you find that the season of spring offers a new hope.
This one goes out to all the plant-lovers and botany enthusiasts out there. You know who you are.
14. Countryside Flowers
If your secret retirement plan is migrating to The Shire and being a hobbit who lives in a whole, be sure to plan your equally secret garden with all the countryside plants and flowers you’re going to grow!
15. Proud Rainbows
Psst. If rainbows are your thing, you have so much to be proud about. Flaunt it, queens.
