Art Materials

The number one question I receive from other artists is about the materials I use, especially the paint pens, so I've outlined some options below.


That said, I always emphasize learning how to use the medium is more important than using the right one. If you're interested in that, I recommend my Patreon channel, which is where I'm building my first long-form drawing curriculum using various prompts. To get started, you can sign up here.

Moleskine Watercolor Notebook

This notebook checks every box. I prefer thicker pages because I tend to pile layers of paint on top of each other, and this has always stood the test. I also like the size - good for carrying around - and the portrait orientation. The perfect street sketchbook.
