If you want to get better at drawing sea shells and palm trees you should make friends with other artists who also like to draw sea shells and palm trees. Creativity requires a network to thrive.
Sea shells and palm trees are perfectly decent places to begin your creative journey but lets face it, they are not exactly that vibrant a topic to draw. If you decide sea shells and palm trees have now gotten bland and you wish to draw something that stirs more emotion in the viewer, you will have to find a new creative network. Your sea shell and palm tree network will not be able to help you.
Walter Isaacson writes in his new book that lone geniuses are overrated. Collaboration is key even for the brightest of people. This is valid not only in art but anywhere creativity applies.
