"There is joy in feeling the bristles of a quality brush, seeing the richness and lush color of truly good pigment flowing onto the paper or canvas. The cheap stuff just makes for harder work and lesser results."
Having the right tools makes all the difference in the world when it comes to art. The fine artist's guide to Tools & Materials is a great resource for a number of different mediums. The book is broken down a number of ways so you can quickly find the information you need. Whether you're sketching, painting, watercoloring, using ink, charcoal, acrylic, or oil this is a one stop resource for you.
In the back of the book there is an easy-to-flip-to index and glossary that encompass different tools, techniques, and tips that are helpful to anyone—novice or master.
What form of art would you like more resources on?
Kristen is an artist living in Norfolk, VA. She is happiest with a cup of coffee in one hand and a paintbrush in the other. A sucker for a sweet sunrise and an unexpected adventure, Kristen's latest inspirations include mermaids, dream catchers, and all things nautical.
If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
