Until I start posting some artwork (which will be very soon) I thought I would provide some information regarding the materials I use.
Firstly, my artworks are mainly done in oil and charcoal. For oil paints I use Old Holland this is generally a personal preference I love the paints consistency. As for charcoal I have a mix of charcoal bricks, charcoal pencils and a charcoal sock.
For my paintings, I use both Hog Bristle and Sable brushes, the medium I use is linseed oil and I always paint on a stretched linen canvas.
Now some reference information. Below are some of my favorite references.
