  • Palette Knife: Small stepped and flexible metal, diamond shaped blade, approx. 2 1/4" blade- type with "Made in Italy" stamped on handle is the best. 


Oil Paint:
It's worth it to invest in higher quality paints. Please don’t buy student grade.
Recommended brands:.  Rublev, Old Holland, Gamblin, Michael Harding and Williamsburg are all good brands.
 *Oil Paint and specific colors  Required for this class,  if you already own other tubes of oil paint, bring what you have to class. 

  • White: Titanium
  • Alizarin Crimson Permanent
  • Cad Red Light
  • Cadmium Yellow Light or lemon
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Ultramarine Blue  
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Burnt Umber or Burnt Sienna
  • Raw Umber
  • Ivory Black or Rublev Bone Black

 

*** Optional Colors if your budget allows

  • Currulean instead of cobalt blue
  • Vermilion instead of cad red light
  • Lead White in addition to titanium white

Some notes about buying paints, the color labels can be confusing:
In general, don't buy anything that says "hue" in the name of the color. It means "fake," they are cheaper and don't use real pigments.
Note *** I like RUBLEV by Natural Pigments. They are a very good brand, well priced and made locally in Willits.
Oils and Solvents
• Refined Linseed Oil - (read label carefully, there are many kinds of Linseed oil)
 + small jars for storing small amounts at the easel
• Stand Oil - small bottle
Not absolutely required  but I recommend this for underpainting
• Gamsol OMS (Oderless mineral spirits by Gamblin) – small bottle only
TIPS: A jar with marbles in the bottom works well for storing linseed oil in. Bring any small jars you have in your recycle like herb jars or hotel jam jars.
Ivory Soap – for washing brushes or buy brush soap from art supply
Optional Canola Oil in a jar: I clean my oil off my brushes first with cheap canola oil then wash in soap and warm water. I use as little solvent as possible, you will learn how to clean your brushes and keep solvent use to a minimum along with safe studio practices.
