For irrelevant reasons I now have $100 of spare money on my paypal account that I'd like to spend on art related paraphernalia.
I'm interested in starting to oil paint and/or sculpt clay, but something tells me $100 won't be enough to do that, correct me if I'm wrong though.
Well, hit me with anything, my main media tent to be drawing with pencil/pen/wacom bamboo. Painting with inkwash and sometimes watercolour, and figure drawing with good old charcoal. I have a couple books like "How to Portray the Clothed Figure" and "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" just to name a couple.
Thanks in advance CA, you guys have done nothing but good for me so far.
You can definitely buy a good selection of decent paints and brushes for $100. You might have to spend a little extra on canvas boards, but there are cheaper solutions if you're just wanting to do some practice things. Of course if you want an easel as well all that together will definitely go over $100. Check craigslist for easels and don't get anything too fancy.
As for an easels, I'd like an easel that can be broken down and put away since I'm tight on space. Metal easels are fine, right?
Cardboard paper raiding skips for panels. Just put some Gesso on them to make sure the oil doesn't soak in.
