Back to the beginner oil painting kit. If you’re wondering, here’s why I wanted to make my own version:
When I started oil painting, the best option for a starter kit was from a certain company represented by a beloved afro-wearing painting guru. It was a good kit, and certainly better than nothing, but it was very much geared towards painting in his specific style, which turned out to be very distant from my own style. I immediately realized that there was still a lot to buy to even be able to start painting (odorless mineral spirits, a stronger easel for his rather aggressive painting style, etc.), so it was a little disappointing to not be able to start right away.
Once I started, I realized that although following along with the chill PBS style tutorials was enjoyable, and did teach me some things, it wasn’t my style.
I then dove into lots of different YouTube tutorials, books, etc and realized that as great as the kit I had was…it was only really geared towards the famous “wet-on-wet” look that that painter was famous for.
I got other materials, and began experimenting with my own style, and realized that there is a gaping void of a space for true beginner oil painting kits! Something that doesn’t break the bank, and that truly has EVERYTHING you need in order to get started. Thus my goal to create the perfect beginner box was born. And here we are today!!!
