We don't just use regular tools, we use tools for art too. Thin, thick, sort, stiff. Paint brushes come in many different shapes and sizes. We also use pencils. Pencils can come colored or regular. Just remember you are always in control of your pencil or brush.
For example, Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, and Pablo Picasso are all amazing. Da Vinci wasn't just an artist, he was also an inventor. Most people don't know that da Vinci modeled a plane before the Wright brothers. Picasso used different shapes in his art. Van Gogh painted around 900 pieces in a decade.
To sum up my thoughts, tools, artist's history, and types of art are kind of important to a creative brain. Who is your favorite artist Van Gogh, da Vinci, Picasso, or even someone I didn't talk about?
