|Practice, practice, practice!|
There was a time when I believed that cheap paints were good to use for practicing or experimentation but I no longer feel that way. As many, many artists have said now and in the past, I think that you should get the best paint your money can buy because a little may go a longer way! (Not to say that I would never ever buy the cheapest brand of anything ever again either lol!) I also think that there is absolutely nothing wrong with using a well researched cheaper paint! So there you have it lol!!!!
|$18.00 set I would probably try!|
With that being said, I also like what the artist said about water mixable oil below - that you should not stick to a single brand just because it was the first one you bought and because you like it. You should experiment with different brands. So I am going to try at least one tube of various brands for comparison.
I think that you can apply the advice above to any type of art supply you may want to try. Wow! I love it when you say that there is a range of 70 colors (see below)! Who don't need 70 colors but wants 70 colors? This gal!!!!!
Here is a beautiful painting by the artist Dorothy Lorenz using water mixable oil paint. Above I have linked to two articles about water mixable oils and I hope they work! (smiles!)
