Below you will find some of the art supplies I use. They are professional grade, as with everthing else, the better quality you get the better the end result will be. Painting with quality paint, on a quality surface and with good brushes will make a noticeable difference in your art.
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” Edgar Degas
I use porcelain palettes, the pigment tends to stay in one place
You should have 2 to 3 sizes of each style brush you want to use. I am partial to brights and filberts.
I prefer glass palettes, they are much easier to clean.
