Hi, my name is Will and I am an art material addict.
When the new season art catalogue arrives, I prepare a large cafetiere of coffee, find a comfy chair and indulge in a little bit of window shopping.
If I spot a new ‘innovative ink system’, it’s hard to imagine how my drawings can exist without it.
And if a magazine states ‘Free Pen (RRP £30) when you spend £50 or more on drawing products’ I’d be a fool to miss out!
But the reality is, when I take my sketches out of the studio into the city or countryside, there is a recurring theme.
Most of the new materials I buy are left behind in my growing number of art supply boxes and I find myself grabbing the same few trusted pens that work well together – again and again.
In fact, to create a huge variety of styles, it’s probably less than 10 materials and that includes different ink colours.
So this week I want to introduce you to my Top #4 Minimalist City Slicker combination sets that I actually use when I’m out sketching on location…
