Materials List Oil

*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.

Quinacridone Magenta – My personal Favorite

Cinnibar Green – Beautiful for flesh tones

Permanent Mauve – My personal Favorite

*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


Cold Pressed linseed oil

Varnish (Optional):

Gamvar (retouch varnish)


Affordable one

Nice one

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

Here are nice onces


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!
