@boygenius1991 Depends on your definition of “Good.”
As far as the paints go, all the pigments are synthetic. As far as the brushes go, again all the brushes are synthetic. And the canvas panels are cloth-wrapped-cardboard. But you’re definitely getting what you pay for!
If by good you mean “Affordable for entry into a hobby you’re not sure you/your kids will like” then yes, this is a good place to start. Ultimately, whether your paintings are considered “good” is highly subjective, and really depends on whether you like them or not. Either way, this is a fair enough price for practicing painting.
BUT, if on the other hand you mean “good” as in “high quality art supplies” then no. You’d have to be crazy enough to pay ~$25 per-brush and per-tube-of-paint for natural Sable brushes, and for organic pigments (even more for the beautiful toxic ones like your Cadmiums, Chromium Oxides, Cobalts, Dioxazines…) There is a reason “Starving artist” is the trope.
So I’m thinking I’d like the watercolors and the acrylics, but also some brushes, so it’s $75 and I’d have 42 canvas panels. Brushes are on sale at Amazon for $9.44, Watercolor set for $9.45, so for about $44 you can have it all and only have 14 canvas panels to feel bad about not having done anything with 12 or 13 of them …
This is not what I call a mega discount, so if I buy the canvas and the paint I have no brushes, or I could buy the canvas and the brushes and paint with my fingers, I would have bought this if it was a complete starter kit would be nice to kill some time see if you have any painting skills but because it is not I will not buy it kind of disappointed.
This set is very nice. I’m looking forward to exploring any art talent that I may have. One thing to improve on this offer; had to choose between paints & brushes. Keep the choice, but maybe offer both for a little more money.
