Short & Sweet Art Supply List

Four of the top drawing materials to start or refresh your practice

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 versatileportable, 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

  1. Royal Talens Art Creation Sketchbook - Like a less costly Moleskine with more pages.

  2. Royal Talens Ecoline Brush Pen Markers - I like Apricot, Pastel Blue, Gold Ochre, Lemon Yellow, Pastel Red, and Sepia Light.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

I love trying new art supplies! This is where I share what I'm using and how it plays with other materials on paper. Sometimes, I share the digital editing process, too!
