A few thoughts on Supplies
If you are not sure where to begin with supplies, here are some ideas. There are literally hundreds of choices in the market but these should get you started.
- Easel: A light table or adjustable easel is a good idea although optional.
- Acrylic set: There are many good brands out there. Try Liquitex Basics and Golden Landscape Painting set
- Oil pastels: Mungyo oil pastels (pretty good!). Pentel oil pastels ( beginner grade.)
- Water color set: Prang water color set. Many other brands that work as well.
- Water color paper: Canson pad
- Soft Pastels: Mungyo soft pastels (cost effective, good quality). Nu Pastel 24 set (Love these!)
- Surface for Soft pastels: Uart 400 sanded paper. (Simply perfect!!)
- Pastel Fixative: (optional) I like workable fixatives as I can keep building layers on them. Try Kyrlon workable fixative.
- Storage, bags: To store your pastel art you can find various different brands of clear bags. A lot of pastel artists also use glassine paper to store their pastel art.
