What stuff to use?

So what paints are good?  I seldom use artists quality paints, I have a few given to me as presents but I don’t tend to buy them.  I usually buy Cotman in tubes and use their cold pressed 300g paper.  Its grain finish works well and it allows certain paints to lift.  I have too many paint tubes, but if I see one I haven’t got, it comes home with me.  The Windsor and Newton Sceptre gold brushes are great.

But really it doesn’t matter…..biro on squared paper, doodling on a receipt….if you’re creating and enjoying it then that’s perfect!
