When it comes to pencils used for drawing on a cheap budget, the cheapest brush that I remember was the Kobo Staedtler, which comes in both white and black.
I still have a few of them from when I was younger though – the only reason I have to mention that is that in those days I would sketch with a pencil (I mean, the kids loved it). Anyway, the price they’re currently on Amazon is about $10.
What tools have you used in your work?
For drawing, I draw with the Pentel Q-Pencil, which I got about 2 years ago. I used an old one in sketching a lot at that time, although I had an old sketchbook laying around. I think that’s my only sketchpad now – I just use the Q-Pencil every now and then.
The only tool I use in painting, which I have learned while drawing at work in the past few weeks, is a pencil, and it’s a Zebra-Pencil I bought about 5 years ago.
On top of that I usually sketch with a Sharpie, and a softpen, and a Diamine Marker, but I don’t draw in those cases. There’s not much to draw.
I do paint, on the other hand…
Yes, I work in the studio, and sometimes I paint – and yes, many other things besides drawing.
The reason I stopped painting is because this is just not possible on a budget. You can paint reasonably well at a good price, but you can’t afford it.
What’s your favourite kind of watercolour?
A lot of my work is done on my trusty old Moleskine, which I still have.
The reason I like watercolours is because it’s a really cool way of writing, and they look like a drawing, unlike a regular ink-and-watercolour, even though you only have a single colour.
And I have several other watercolours from my own collection, which I use both in paintings and on sketches.
What are some of your favourite book covers?
The ones in the Moleskine book are my favourites. They all have one thing in common: they’re just really cool!
Which other painting is your favourite?
I think that this is a pretty fair question. I like painting so many things, so it
pencil drawing books for kids, step by step easy colored pencil drawings of flowers, easy black and white pencil drawings of a dog, pencil drawings of dragons and fairies pictures, pencil drawings of flowers in a vase
