Discover the Basic Art Supplies for Artists at Spotlight

Are you taking your first steps in the world of art? If so, then you will need some basic art supplies to get you started! These basic art supplies can be obtained from Spotlight, because we provide everything for the budding artist. Check out our overview of basic art supplies below to find out what you will need.

What Is the First Essential I Will Need to Start with Art?

Every artist needs some quality drawing pencils. It does not matter if they are taking their first steps in the world of art, because drawing pencils of higher quality will provide a much better result in the beginning. It also teaches the artist to start using the proper pencils immediately.

At Spotlight, customers can find many quality drawing pencils. These pencils can be obtained in a set, but we also have individual pencils available. As you may know already, new artists will need a set of drawing pencils as well as individual pencils. However, we must mention that some artists prefer to buy individual pencils to match their preferences, since they do not use all the pencils in drawing pencil sets.

What Is the Second Essential I Will Need to Start with Art?

Artists who want to begin drawing must have a sketchbook too. However, you need more than just an average sketchbook though, because an artist requires and active sketchbook, which will be used daily.

Active sketchbooks are larger than the average sketchbook you will find in stores. The sketchbook must have a larger number of pages, but these must be made from quality paper to obtain the quality sketches you want.

Spotlight provides many sketchbooks that are perfect for budding artists, so you will have no problems finding a sketchbook for all your daily sketching needs. We even have sketchbooks with beautiful embellishments, which could certainly be used as a gift.

What Is the Third Essential I Will Need to Start with Art?

As a new artist, you will need a good drawing surface too. While artists could practically draw on anything, the drawing surface you use can influence the result you obtain. There are several types of paper that can affect the result of your artwork. Below, you will find an overview of the most common types.

Basic Drawing Paper

The first type of paper used for artwork is the basic drawing paper. Basic drawing paper has a medium texture; this texture enables artists to draw with different types of pencils such as graphite, charcoal, and coloured pencils.

Charcoal Paper

Artists could also use charcoal paper for their art. Charcoal paper has a heavier texture, but does not weigh as much as you might think. Instead, charcoal paper is incredibly light. However, due to the heavier texture, charcoal paper is often used by artists who want to have more texture in their artwork.

Bristol Paper

Another common type of paper used by artists is called Bristol paper; this is a type of paper that has one of the smoothest textures available today. Despite its smoothness, Bristol paper is still quite heavy. Because of its properties, Bristol paper is a popular choice for artists who want to play with values (shades of black and white). Bristol paper is also the preferred choice of artists who work with ink.

What Is the Fourth Essential I Will Need to Start with Art?

Every artist who works on their drawings will need some erasers too. Of course, much like pencils, there are different types of erasers available that could affect your artwork. Below, we have described the various types of erasers you could obtain as an artist.

The Rubber Eraser

Rubber erasers are probably most common, since these erasers use friction to remove material from the paper. They are also the recommended erasers for most graphite pencils.

The Kneaded Eraser

Artists could also choose a kneaded eraser, which does not use friction, but lifts the material from the paper instead. Kneaded erasers are used for more than the removal of material though, because artists also use kneaded erasers to create specific marks on the paper.

The Gum Eraser

Another option is the gum eraser, which is the preferred option for artists who work with sensitive and delicate types of paper. The gum eraser removes material through friction, but crumbles when it is used; this means that the drawing surface is perfectly preserved.

The Vinyl Eraser

The last type of eraser is the vinyl eraser; this is one of the toughest type of erasers on the market today. However, since it is also the toughest type of eraser, it also means that the eraser is not that suitable for delicate types of paper. So, only use this eraser when you have no other choice.
