Drawing Tools and Equipment

Acquiring your drawing equipment can be exciting, and possibly a bit overwhelming. I still get a great deal of joy going into an art store and wandering around to see what's new. I get the same feeling when a new catalog comes in the mail. I find myself going through the whole catalog even though I might only need a few pencils. It is the thrill or anticipation of finding something new to work with —that magic pen or brush that somehow always eludes us. As time goes by, you are going to want to try other materials to draw with, and you should. That's part of the excitement.

In the pages that follow, I will acquaint you with some of the basic materials available for sketching and drawing outdoors. There are many more, but to get started, you will want to simplify the amount of equipment you carry with you.
