That all those hundreds of products exist to help you art because there is enough demand to make a market for them.
And there is enough demand because there are thousands of other artists out there, just like you, who need those supplies to experiment with their creations.
Erasers of all shapes and sizes exist because artists make mistakes.
Sketchbooks of all sizes and qualities exist because artists draw differently.
There are hundreds of colour palettes to choose from because every artist uses colours differently.
I could go on. There is no “perfect” medium to use. There is no magical set of materials that will produce “perfect” art. Walking into an art supply store is literally you, an artist, taking a step into a playground, with infinite options and combinations of things to play with. Paint is just paint until you put it on a canvas.
Experiment. Try new colours, different media types, different sizes of paper. Make mistakes. Have fun :)
