Materials checklist.

The aim of this class is to paint small and paint often. For students, get good quality branded paints such as Winton Oils -good student quality paint, you can get them everywhere and the colours are consistent). 
 
ESSENTIAL 6 COLOURS FOR BEGINNER PAINTERS:
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Permanent Rose
  • Cadmium Yellow Pale Hue
  • Titanium White (or Titanium buff)
  • Burnt Siena (or Burnt Umber)
  • Ivory Black (failing Ivory Black, get Indigo or Paynes Grey).

 

DO bring the following (BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE PAINTERS):

  • Bring boards or canvases –don’t forget you’ll need to take them home with you after the session, so not too big. Somewhere around 6″ x 8″ or 8″ x 10″ is perfect.
  • A Table box-easel (Like the ones at this link). These are widely available in art shops.
  • flat wood painter’s palette (rather than one of those white plastic palettes with dips -they’re more for watercolours).
  • Solvent: Zest-it, (if you can’t get that, get Sansodor). For cleaning brushes and diluting paint.
  • A jar or tin with a water-tight screw-top lid for your solvent. You could also use a ‘dipper’ or ‘double-dipper” (Like the ones at this link).
  • Brushes –Synthetic short flat brights: 12 and 6. Also, a Round No. 1. Try Crafty Studio,  ArtminesK&M Evans or Eason) and THESE are the ones.  See a video about beginner brushes here.
  • It’s useful to have a small palette knife for mixing and cleaning up – and sometimes painting.
  • Rags
  • If you like Liquin, bring that too. (Liquin is a quick-drying medium and glazing additive).
  • Wet wipes.
  • Wear old clothes: painting can be a messy business!
