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 16×20. Make sure it is portrait quality. You can also purchase one from me. If you are just beginning with me you won’t need a canvas initially.

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 or freezer paper with a sponge underneath on plastic tray. It permits paints to mix easily without soaking through and keeps paint moist.

4.Brushes: I enjoy using Simply Simmons brushes; they offer superb resilience while holding a good, sharp edge. Angular: 1/8, ¼, ½, ¾, 3/8, 1”. You will need to purchase 2 each of these. If you do not have any brushes, the angle brushes are the most versatile. You can also purchase these from me.

5.Paints: I highly recommend Golden Open Acrylics. This is a slow drying acrylic paint that makes working with acrylic a joy! If you don’t want the Open acrylics, then any good professional brand such as Golden, Windsor Newton, Holbein, etc. I do not recommend Van Gogh, Rembrandt or Winton because they are lacking in pigment and are student grade. Recommended colors: burnt umber, titanium white, cadmium red light, lemon yellow, sap green, cobalt blue, mars black, yellow ochre, alizirin crimson.

6. Jars and Msc.: I recommend the Open Medium to use with your Open acrylics. It makes blending so much nicer. For regular acrylics I suggest an acrylic flow release to keep your paint from drying so fast. Jelly jars or small tupperware bowls with lids to hold your water and a spray bottle to keep your paints moist, paper towels. I highly recommend using Masters brush cleaner and conditioner as another step to care for your brushes.

2.Pencils:

3. Palette:

4. Brushes:

Angular: 1/8, ¼, ½, ¾, 1”. I suggest you purchase 2 of each.
If you do not have any brushes, the angle brushes are the most versatile. Again, you can also purchase these from me.


5. Paints:
Any good professional brand such as Windsor Newton, Holbein, Williamsburg, etc. Make sure you purchase the professional grade for the best results
.
We don’t recommend Rembrandt, Van Gogh or Winton (a sub-grade of Windsor Newton) because their colors lack pigment. Recommended colors: burnt umber, titanium white, cadmium red light, lemon yellow, sap green, cobalt blue, mars black, yellow ochre, alizirin crimson. Do not buy any colors with the word “Hue” in them. They are muddy colors. There are also boxed assortments in the Holbein brand.




6. Mediums:
Original liquin is great to use because it allows the oil to dry faster. For clean up, we suggest turpenoid or any odorless turpentine substitute (not natural turpenoid in the green can). I highly recommend using Masters brush cleaner and conditioner as another step to care for your brushes.


7. Jars and Msc.:
A palette knife, jelly jars or small tupperware bowls with lids to hold your thinners and paper towels. We also suggest you get either a stand up easel or tabletop easel at some point but not initially.
