We all gravitate to a particular medium, one that feels most comfortable and helps us "express" ourselves better. We can also get into a rut with that favorite medium, periods when inspiration dries up and it's hard to pick up the brush. So instead of trying to find some other distraction, try another medium. I find painting outside with pastels a great change of pace. It's a quick response medium to the colors I'm seeing . Also more color mixing right on the image instead
of a palette, allowing colors to be very immediate and intense. Watercolor outdoors also jars a different part of my brain, taking me from opaque chunks of color to subtle transparent washes. I'm still looking for the same results as I am in oil but using a different thought process.
