Fastest and easiest art medias to work with?

Recommended Posts

I tend to enjoy the research aspect much more and I'd rather spend more time on that. On top of that, I don't have much time until my exams this April (or is it May?) and I still haven't got a single peice I'd like to include in my final exam. If I want to get efficient work done I'll have to consider using the easiest mediums/medias to work with. Things like clay and paints would probably be too time consuming.

Just some opinions would be nice...

I would look at the different artists or art movements you have enjoyed researching and use their techniques and mediums to inspire your work. Watercolor can be relatively quick although it requires some planning beforehand. I personally would rule out painting because it is one of my favorite mediums, however everyone has there different strengths and preferences. Unfortunately producing all beautiful work takes time to create and largely depends on the artist. My best advice would be to use a medium you have the most experience with or enjoy using the most. GOOD LUCK!!

Acrylic paints are really easy to use

Watercolor needs more care

Oil painting is basically time consuming, unless you know how to manage your time

Sculpture work is a bit more time consuming

Crayons are very useful media for quick sketches or drawings

Pen and ink is also handy, you just need a sketch, pen and paper and thats it...

I wish you luck for the exhibition! :3
