What art supplies you chose to use is often very specific to you. If you’re a painter for example, your choice of art supplies will be a lot different to someone who doesn’t so much look at anything else apart from charcoal. Alike a lot of the entire process of finding your own niche in art, learning to pick the right art supplies for you also comes with a lot of trial and error.
I realised very early on in my love for art that I wasn’t very much of a painter.
[blockquote author=]“I also realised that I love definition in my drawings. I’m not one of those people that can make a drawing look good by using just 1 colour. I like solid black lines in my drawings. This has led me to invest in a range of black pens and markers for my art.”[/blockquote]
I also mainly draw people which means I’ve had to make sure I always have access to a range of skin toned colour pencils.
It’s the little things that have slowly made me understand what supplies I work with best.
In terms of the cost, a lot of the pens are supplies I use can all be purchase under £5-10 collectively. I don’t go out of my way to buy really expensive supplies. A lot of the supplies I now love using came down to a matter of trial and error. I bought a few things and tried them out and stuck with the ones I liked the best. The only thing I’d recommend spending a little extra on would be a good set of colour pencils and a good quality sketchbook.
