I got giddy when a friend asked me for a supply list to start their drawing practice. Art materials are like toys for grown people!
These materials are versatile, portable, and more affordable. They're eco-friendly (you can refill these markers!), high quality, and most importantly, fun to use. In the video for paid members, I show my favorite ways to use them.
Supplies to start or refresh your drawing practice
Royal Talens Art Creation Sketchbook - Like a less costly Moleskine with more pages.
Royal Talens Ecoline Brush Pen Markers - I like Apricot, Pastel Blue, Gold Ochre, Lemon Yellow, Pastel Red, and Sepia Light.
Caran d'Ache Neocolor II Aquarelle Artists' Pastel - These are the hardest working tools in my kit! I use them wet, dry, and everything in between. They’re the most fun in the summer because they get super soft and melty.
Derwent Inktense Pencils - I often use these dark colors for line work. Madder Brown, Lagoon, and Peacock Blue are my favorites.
These aren’t affiliate links. I only get the satisfaction of sharing the things I love drawing with!
After spending 100 days using only three materials (four if you count a sketchbook), I can say with authority that these tools play together beautifully. They still keep me excited to take my sketchbook out and draw every day.
