Start with the simplest materials (paints, brushes, etc.)
Do not try to buy all the things you will need for painting properly all too fast. You will see, that:
- They cost a fortune. Really. And you haven’t even yet specialized on one or more specific ways, which will cost even more money.
- You really don’t need all these just yet. It may even take years until you do. So why overspend when it’s not needed?
- If you want to draw you need a pencil. If you want to paint, you need any sort of paint. No matter its oil paint or watercolor. You will get started wherever you can or feel like.
- Be careful with your funds. Arts can be very expensive. Use tzhis as a hobby and stay relaxed. You don’t need more than the basics, to learn the basics. The emphasis should always be on what you do and not on the equipment you use for it.
