How to Start Painting

I would like to get started with painting I'm artistic, but have no formal training. What do you suggest?

First, Acrylics are probably your best bet as a beginning medium for painting. Acrylics are fast drying, water soluble, and provide for easy clean-up and quick corrections. For painters used to working with oil, the fast drying properties of acrylics can tend to be a bit bothersome. But with experience, acrylics can be worked to create the appearance of an oil or watercolor, so in essence, you could try at least two styles (i.e. watercolor & acrylic) with the same product.

Another advantage with acrylics is the price. Although top end acrylics can be more expensive, excellent quality acrylics, such as Daler-Rowney System 3 Acrylics or Grumbacher Academy Acrylics, can still be purchased for a very reasonable price.

We've put together a few sets so that you can experiment with any of the mediums without tremendous outlay. We put together the best products for the best price. Along with the sets you might want to get together a few of the following

With the suggested sets you should be well prepared to venture forth into the world of painting.

Enjoy your journey into the land of painting. If you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Rex with your questions. We are always glad to help a beginning artist, as well as a time weathered veteran.

Happy painting!
