Painting is a hobby enjoyed by artists of all ages and skill levels. With a paintbrush and paint, you can transform a blank canvas into anything you imagine, from simple designs and pictures to breathtaking landscapes, portraits, and more. Introductory paint sets are great for artists learning how to paint. Paint sets will often include watercolor or acrylic paints and paintbrushes, as well as other painting tools to get you started.
Some paint sets will also include a canvas or artist pad. If not, you can purchase canvases separately in various sizes. It is also a good idea to purchase an easel, which will help hold your canvas as you paint, keeping your canvas at the right angle for painting and also preventing paint smudges from moving your canvas while it’s still wet. Tabletop easels are small and convenient for artists to use at home.
As you advance your painting skills, you can start to experiment with different styles and sizes of paintbrushes. Paintbrush sets come in different sizes and contain a variety of round, flat, and angular brushes to achieve different painting techniques.
