Dear Fran

Paints, brushes and canvases are so expensive. Since I’m just starting out learning how to paint, can I buy the cheapest supplies then add the more expensive ones as I get better?

Dear Anon,

I asked my good friend Darice, a teacher of art, what she thought about this.  Her reply is as follows.  Best of luck with your new lifestyle, for that is what it becomes 🙂

Hi Anon

It’s tough enough to get a good result when you are learning to paint without giving yourself a further handicap by using inferior paints, brushes and canvases. Buying cheap is often a false economy and is likely to set you up for frustration and disappointment. Buying quality materials will help you achieve better results.

HAVE YOU GOT A QUERY FOR OUR FRAN AND FRIENDS?
