Do I have any hobbyist painters out there? I have the urge to paint something, maybe for my living room, but I’m not sure what the most cost effective type of paint is for a beginner?
What supplies to you absolutely must have, besides canvas, brush, pallette, and paint?
What paint do you advise for a novice?
Any little anecdotes you want to include to offer artistic insight?
Or, Just show off your work here!!! I’d love to look at the beauty your hands have created.

Here is my latest it is a Giraffe eating.
I really like using sponges but besides that I don’t use much else. I do use pencils to sketch what I am painting.
I use a mixed media of water color, oil, and acrylic. My favorite is acrylic and that is what I used when I first started in highschool.
Go with your gut and remember it doesn’t have to look perfect try not to over analyze your paintings.

This is the state park that my wedding will be held in!
I used acrylics on canvas. I like to paint from pictures that I like.
