Natasha’s Gift Guide for Artists and Creatives

 A series of posts on products I love to use. Enjoy!

The "panic and give" season is upon us. If you’re struggling to find a gift for the artist or creative in your life, here are a few of my favorite products and gadgets. I, too, am guilty of liking shiny, bright things, but I’m only listing things I’ve used!

Don’t know where to start for choosing colors?! 

Gift this Watercolor Dot Chart by Daniel Smith.  This chart allows your artist to explore colors without committing to purchasing tubes of paint. Daniel Smith paints are my absolute favorite, and they give the vibrant, super-saturated colors I love. 

Quality of paper makes all the difference for watercolor painters-- beginners or professionals--and it can be an investment. Go for an Arches Watercolor Block, Cold Press. The quality and tooth of the paper will make colors sing, and the “block” controls buckling. Blocks (the pages are glued at the edges, making a block) come in all shapes and sizes. If you think your arty person would prefer to tear off sheets of paper, try this 9 x 12 inch tablet
