PAINT: Watersoluble Oil Paints (Daniel Smith or Holbein, but NOT Artisan by Windsor Newton) OR Traditional Oil Paints used with Odorless Mineral Spirits (Gamblin, Windsor Newton…) or Walnut Oil Paints (M. Graham Brand paints and mediums)
- Alizarin Crimson (permanent, if available)

- Titanium Whites
- Dioxazine Purple
- optional: Cadmium Red, Medium
- optional: Phthalo Blue (green shade)

BRUSHES: Sizes vary by manufacturer, I prefer a mix of synthetic and natural bristles for my oils - the better the brush, the easier it is to make your work look better!
- Medium Round: about a size 4
- Small and Medium Filberts: these are flat, with a rounded top edge. Try a couple of sizes, maybe a 2 and an 8
- Large Flat: Get an inch or so wide brush for laying in washes of color
MEDIUMS: Make sure you’re getting water soluble oil medium if you’re painting with water-soluble oils. These can be used with traditional oil paint, but the same is not true the other way round!
- Fast dry medium
- optional: Oil medium (linseed oil works just fine)
- Gesso (Acrylic based gesso is fine!)
SUPPORTS: I always like my students to try different supports, so please consider bringing in multiple types of support. Minimum: 4 supports, anywhere from 8x10 to 9x12 inches in size. Choose from this selection:
- Stretched canvas
- Canvas Panel
- Wooden Panel
- Oil Paper
- …play with the surface you paint on!
- Water tub
- Palette knife (metal ones are best)
- Palette (wooden, glass, or paper are all fine!)
- Rags or paper towel
- Apron or clothes you’re ok with getting messy in!
