My Preferred Tools!
I get asked often what painting tools I use, and this is my holy trinity!
Trekell is a small business brand that creates paint brushes, and other artist supplies that is made by artists for artists. Their quality surpasses any brushes I have used that are both affordable, and great to use. I will never get enough of the great items they create!
I thought nothing would match the delightful feeling and matte look of egg tempera paint. It had a lovely ability to layer color, keep a velvet sheen, and dried instantly. When I found acryla-gouache my life changed forever. This Japanese brand is far above the rest.
Upon being gifted some Legion Paper by my friend Tara McPherson, I had immediately fallen in love with the brand. Professional quality at a reasonable price is unbeatable, but they truly have anything you would desire for a paper texture, use, and color. If I am not using Legion, I use Arches hot press.
