Many painters have a medium of choice, but there's no reason your craft closet can't include a few different options! Obviously, the quality of the paint products you select will depend on your budget and how serious you are about painting, so research your options before dropping too much cash. A few of the candidates include acrylics, oils, tempura, watercolor and even poster paints for little kids and those who teach them. Grab a set or two of brushes and you're ready to channel your inner Da Vinci, provided you have some paper on hand. An easel wouldn't hurt, either.
