This a supply list for oils.

These are a suggested list of supplies, so bring whatever you are comfortable with. Please contact me if you have any questions. I will show you various ways to approach your painting from start to finish. Come ready to enjoy yourself!

1. Bring a stretched canvas.
We don’t recommend anything smaller than 16x20 and make sure it’s a smooth canvas.

2.Pencils:
Bring pencils for your drawing and outline. I suggest a #2H pencil, and a kneaded eraser. 

3. Palette: Bring a palette of your choice. I like using a sheet palette tablet with poly-coated paper. It permits paints to mix easily without soaking through.

4. Brushes:
I enjoy using Loew Cornell white nylon brushes; they offer superb resilience while holding a good, sharp edge. Flats: #2,#4,#6,#8, style 796;  Angular: ¼, ½, ¾, 3/8, style 793; Round: #0,#2,#3,#4, style 795. If you do not have any brushes, the angle brushes are the most versatile.

5. Paints:
Any good professional brand such as Windsor Newton, Holbein, etc. Make sure you purchase the professional grade for the best results. We don’t recommend Rembrandt or Winton (a sub-grade of Windsor Newton) If you don’t have any paints, just get the primary colors and we’ll show you how to mix. Recommended colors: burnt umber, titanium white, cadmium red, lemon yellow, sap green, cobalt blue, mars black, alzirin crimson. We don't recommend water-based oils only because the colors are not as vivid as regular oils. Do not buy any colors with the word “Hue” in them. They are muddy colors.

6. Mediums:
Liquin is great to use because it allows the oil to dry faster. For clean up, we suggest turpenoid or any odorless turpentine substitute.

7. Jars and Msc.:
Jelly jars or small tupperware bowls with lids to hold your thinners and paper towels.
