*feel free to use different materials that you have or wish to buy
Windsor and Newton or Rembrandt is the preferred brand. I would HIGHLY discourage you from buying Student Grade Paint, it is of the VERY poor quality. If you are very limited on the budget, buy LESS of the ARTIST GRADE PAINT that I am recommending here. It is better to use three tubes of good paint then thirty paints of poor quality.
*take the necessary with a grain of salt
Transparent oxide yellow
Kings BlueCadmium Yellow Light
Transparent Oxide Red
Quinacridone Magenta – My personal Favorite
Ivory Black Very Useful
Cinnibar Green – Beautiful for flesh tones
Permanent Mauve – My personal Favorite
Terra Verte – Very Useful
Indian Yellow Deep – Great glazing color
#4 round, #6 round, # 5 filbert, # 8 filbert
*Brushes are a matter of taste. If you know which once you like – please follow your grove.
you will need 2 of either. 16×20″ is best size to get.
Better Canvas – it is oil primed and provides best results.
Affordable Canvas– totally fine for our purposes.
Panel – as you see panels are pricey. During the workshop I will share my technique to make them yourself for a fraction of the cost with Home Depot materials.
we will learn working solvent free, but in the initial stage of painting solvent is recommended
Gamvar (retouch varnish)
I highly recommend this container to save your paints overnight, make sure that size fits your palette.
we will also need :
paper towels (shop grade is preferable) or old rags
a glass or metal container for solvent *any tin can or mason jar
and glass or metal small container for oil
For the purposes of this workshop any way you can mount your canvas vertically would do.
Here is a nice and affordable easel FYI
All this being said. If you don’t have any of these things — NO WORRY. Make sure you have some paint, a brush and what to paint on and you are ready to learn!
