Starting out as an amateur artist can be hard if you are unaware of what art supplies to buy.

Every potential painter will need art supplies essentials such as easels, canvases, paint brushes and all manner of paints as these are the basic requirements for someone looking to commence a creative career.

Determined drawers should ensure they purchase plenty of pencils as well as art paper, crayons, charcoal as these will be necessary to start sketching out all types of visual art work.

Those wanting to use watercolours may be interested in acrylic paints as they dry fast and can be diluted but become water resistant when dry, while hobby painters can use such paints to decorate figures and crafts.

Gouache paints are an alternative to watercolours because they both contain similar properties where as gouache paints dry fast, are thicker and have a matt finish with greater reflective qualities.

Painters should look into buying oil paints as they are exceptional at retaining colour, however, they can take several weeks to dry and are best suited to those working on canvas.

Buying the correct brush is crucially important because they come in various shapes, sizes and are suitable for only one method of painting with watercolour brushes consisting of nylon or sable.

Oil paint brushes are also made from sable are bristle, while acrylic brushes are made from nylon and brush handles are usually constructed from wood, moulded plastic or metals such as aluminium and copper.

Drawers wanting to ensure the quality of their artwork should use paper with a neutral PH level and such paper must be compatible with the medium used as this can dramatically affect the final outcome.
