The Ultimate Art Supply Guide

Ultimate Art Supply Guide

Welcome to The Ultimate Art Supply Guide! This page is your go-to guide for figuring out what art supplies you need.

Whether you’re a student, seasoned professional, or a complete beginner who has never even picked up a painting brush, this guide will provide you with all the art essentials, plus a few fun extras that can improve your life or help you make sense of the online art supply maze (Pro-tip: be the person who has a list).

I’ve put a ton of work into The Ultimate Art Supply Guide; I hope you’ll find it helpful.

To make it easy to navigate, everything is broken down into categories.

Most links here go to AmazonFull disclosure: This blog participates in the Amazon Associates program, and I’ll earn a commission on qualifying purchases made through the links on this page (at no extra cost to you). I’ve worked hard to recommend items that are both high-quality and affordable.

During my more than twenty years as a professional working artist, I have personally used every one of the products and brands that I recommend in this guide. So, I can wholeheartedly attest to the value and quality of each recommendation.

Do note that you also can also buy many of these things locally.

Top Artist Oil Paint Brands
Old Holland Classic Oil Colors
Old Holland Classic Oil Colors Image

Old Holland prides itself on intensity of the colors and great covering power. Highest quality and highest price. They contain no fillers or waxes and use only lightfast pigments. This is the greatest oil paint for the true connoisseur.

Holbein Artist’s Oils
Holbein Artist’s Oils Image

Pure pigments at a lower price, Holbein boasts consistent viscosity, color, tone, application, and adhesion.

Schmincke Mussini Oils
Schmincke Mussini Oils Image

Schmincke Mussini Oils contain natural resins for a balanced drying process with reduced aging and long-term cracking. Good for painting in layers and for glazing techniques

Sennelier Oils
Sennelier Oils Image

One of the oldest paint manufacturers in Europe, Sennelier was once the choice for Pablo Picasso. Combines highest quality pigments with highest quality manufacturing processes.

Gamblin
Gamblin Image

I have used Gamblin for many years and it remains one of my favorites. I was first introduced to this brand when I was a student at the Art Students’ League of New York. Many students and art teachers there were using this oil paint. It combines the best of quality with the best of economy. Whether you are a student or professional, you will be very happy with this oil paint choice.

Winsor & Newton Artist’s Oil Colors
Winsor & Newton Artist’s Oil Colors Image

Winsor & Newton is a top choice for students as well as professional painters around the world. I have used this brand many times throughout my professional career and have always been completely satisfied with the result. If you are a student or beginning painter and have the extra budget, I strongly recommend that you try this oil paint. You will not be disappointed.

Grumbacher Oil Colors
Grumbacher Oil Colors Image

Grumbacher was the first oil paint that I painted with when I was a teenager. At that time, the quality of the paint was much superior than it is today. Over the years, Grumbacher has been acquired by several larger companies that are more concerned with the bottom line than producing a quality product. I would still recommend this brand for beginning painting students.

Daler Rowney Georgian
Daler Rowney Georgian Image

I was first introduced to Georgian oil paints by Daler Rowney when I was a student at the Art Students’ League of New York. There were some of the students there who were using this brand of oil paint. A fellow student allowed me to sample and use some of their Georgian colors. This brand is a good choice if you are considering price over quality. You can usually find this brand at most art supply stores, department stores even drugstores. It usually is priced very low in most retail stores.

Winsor & Newton Winton Oils
Winsor & Newton Winton Oils Image

Winton Oil paints are my favorite pick for beginning painters. They combine the perfect combination of quality and price. If you are a beginning painter, you will appreciate the lower cost without sacrificing too much on the quality side. You will certainly get the results you want without breaking the bank. I have used Winton oil colors extensively throughout my art career and wholeheartedly recommend them.
