This depends on the individual artist and their seniority. Some artists like to change styles and as doing water colour previously may turn to oil paints or vice versa.
Creative artists sometimes also dabble with collages and murals as the art field has unlimited dimensions. Each piece of art is unique and every artist brings out the best by using the same art materials.
