Gorgeous gifts for artists

Brushes, pens, markers and paint sets of all shapes and sizes!

Our winter wonderland of artist’s materials just goes on and on, so we’ve put together a selection of the very best to make choosing that gift for the art fans in your life that little bit easier.

Whether they are an amateur dabbler, curious creative or picky professional, here are the gifts that will put a smile on their face bigger than those two front teeth they claim to want every year.

Artist gift #1

This Essdee Lino Cutting and Printing Kit will give them everything they need for the perfect lino this Christmas. It provides a comprehensive assortment of tools and materials for both cutting and printing with lino - and there are two types of lino to practise on.

Artist gift #2

Winsor & Newton never fail to impress.
The quality of their oil paints is legendary - and this gift set of artist oils comes in a beautiful, environmentally-friendly Bamboo Box Set.

High-quality brushes and palettes complement eight tubes of Artist Oil Colour, including Winsor Yellow, Crimson Alizarin, Winsor Blue (Red Hue), Winsor Green, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Ivory Black and Titanium White.

Artist gift #3

Don’t be fooled by the name. This set of 36 Liquitex acrylics have been designed to be affordable - but not at the expense of quality. Each colour has been uniquely formulated to bring out the maximum brilliance and clarity of the individual pigment. The paints have a heavy body whose smooth, buttery consistency makes for beautiful blends.

That treacly texture also lends itself to emulating the tactile peaks and brush marks of oils, but these acrylics can also be used to achieve watercolour techniques, airbrush finishes and perfect prints.

Go on, bring a bit of colour to Christmas this year!

Artist gift #4

This is much more than a studio easel.
The Daler-Rowney Cotswold Easel is made from the finest oiled beechwood and its sturdy frame can be adjusted by height or tilt to offer a range of canvas positions.

What sets it apart, however, is its portability. At the twist of just five Allen screws, this easel can be transported anywhere.
