Oil painting is timeless and luscious, and Angela Bandurka will show you how to use this versatile medium while avoiding the solvents of the past! Angela will give you some ideas on how to get started in this versatile medium, helping you to feel more confident through the skills you will be practicing and the tools you’ll get to know. You’ll learn helpful tips on how to apply the paint, layering methods, and what the final touches should be.

Supply List

PAINT:

M. Graham walnut-based oil paint

    • Quinacridone Rose (or substitute: Alizarine Crimson)
    • Cadmium Yellow Light
    • Ultramarine Blue
    • Titanium White
    • Burnt Umber

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:

    • Walnut Oil
    • Walnut Oil Alkyd

SUPPORTS:

One support, anywhere from 9x12 inches to to 11x14 inches maximum. Choose one from this selection:

    • Stretched canvas (softer marks, shows texture of weave)
    • Canvas Panel (sharper marks, shows texture of weave)
    • or, optional: Wooden Panel (sharper marks, harder to make a soft edge)

OTHER: 

  • Lidded glass jar for walnut oil (baby or pickled fruit jars are best)
    • 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!
    • optional: Table easel or standing easel
    • optional: Box to lay wet painting in for transport home. If it’s raining or snowing, consider bringing something to cover the box while carrying it outside. I tend to use shallow cardboard boxes.
