Hand selected by master portrait artist Daniel Greene, these vibrant, handmade pastels feature a smooth, creamy texture that makes them a pleasure to use.

Because they are made by hand, not machine, the pigment hardly gets pressed at all. The sticks are rolled lightly, making them very fluent when used — almost like soft charcoal.

The set contains 144 pastels that measure approximately 2-1/8" long × 5/8" diameter (54 mm × 16 mm). Boxed in a handsome wooden carrying case that folds out for easy access, the pastels are protected with foam padding for storage and transport.

The wooden case measures 54" (137 cm) wide when fully opened and 3"H × 18"W × 12"D (8 cm × 46 cm × 30 cm) when closed.

Grumbacher® Max® WaterMiscible Oil Paint Tubes. This professional quality line of oil colors offers all the benefits of traditional oil paints without the worries of clean up. Made from authentic artist pigments, these colors are vibrant and long-lasting. Paint has a thin consistency and cleans up with water instead of chemicals. Each color is in a 1 1/4-oz. tube.

With oil colors, even more than with acrylics or watercolors, it is essential to understand the properties of pigments themselves. Some pigments dry more slowly than others. Choose faster drying colors for the first layers. Allowing the first layers to dry before additional paint is applied is essential to achieving stability.

Blick's color swatches and pigment information are unique. Examine the color to find out what pigments it contains, and what the properties of that pigment are. Keep in min ... Read more »

Strong, sturdy, inexpensive, and made for everyday use, these all-purpose brushes are designed for use with oil and acrylic paint. For students, these are great brushes to start with — but they're also ideal for artists who do a lot of scrubbing and really beat up their brushes! Thick and full-bodied, they hold lots of paint.

A synthetic brush that actually feels like a bristle brush! The result of years of development, the individual filaments have the extreme taper of natural bristle and are gently coaxed with heat to a natural curve. Ideal for the new water-mixable oil paints, these brushes retain their stiffness in water. They are also less susceptible to the ravages of acrylic paint. They cost a bit more than bristle, but may save you in the long run. Set of 4 — Save with this set of 4 brushes in a mixture of shapes! Includes the following brushes: Flat 6, Bright 4, Bright 12, and Round 6.

Anyone serious about their artwork will be using a graphic tablet. The mouse simply doesn’t enable the degree of flexibility required. And when you consider the benefits of pressure sensitivity, which provides line thickness and ink density, you’ll quickly realise that the old soap-on-a-rope mouse is living on borrowed time. However, tablets can be expensive things and although cheaper models are available from rival manufacturers it’s Wacom that win hands down with quality and performance that’s worth paying that little bit more for.

Thankfully, cost isn’t too much of an issue with the Volito. Aimed primarily at being a mouse replacement than a drawing tool, the Volito has a tiny footprint of around 20x20cm which contains the A6 sized active area. And although this might not provide the amount of freedom available to A4 sized Intuos3 users, the Volito is infi ... Read more »
