Take your work up a notch with shit-hot materials!
As with many things, you get what you pay for with paint.
If you buy the shit paint from the $2 shop, it’s watered down and the pigments suck
If you get the mid-range stuff from the art store, its semi-decent
This paint is what I learned with. It’s what most people learn with.
And then I had the chance to try another artist’s top-shelf paint.
I actually didn’t realise how much better it would be.
These paints are anywhere from $17-$70 a tube, sometimes even more depending on the pigment.
It’s a huge investment. And I didn’t realise how worth-it it was, until I tried them.
I watched colours spread upon the canvas like never before. The colour was INTENSE. I was also on LSD… but STILL. the colours were incredible. The pigments were inspiring.
Quality Oil Paints are smooth and buttery and FULL of pigment - full of life.
Same goes for top-shelf acrylics.
I’ve made the change from mid-range paints to the top level stuff… and I’m NEVER going back.
You get what you pay for.
In my painting workshops, I love giving people the same experience I had a few years ago. (Minus the LSD, haha!!)
They just can’t compare!!
If you’re an artist looking to upgrade to the best paints,
Here are my recommendations:
Oils - Old Holland, Williamsburg, Michael Harding and Gamblin
Acrylics - Golden Brand. I love Golden’s Fluid Acrylic range because I like to paint thinly.
