Oil Painting

Oil Painting

Things to bring this oil painting design

  • Oil paints (if on a budget, the only colors you need are Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White)
  • Color wheel (to assist with the correct combinations for specific colors, and to help you understand how complementary colors can be used)
  • Walnut or Linseed Oil (to combine with pigments to create your own paint, if desired)
  • Brushes (Connoisseur’s Hog Bristle or any bristle in sizes 10&4, 2, 4, & 8 Round, 6 & 8 Flat, and a 1 Filbert. You will find which brushes suit you most though.)
  • Thinner or Turpentine or Turpenoid (to rinse brushes while painting and create thinner wash techniques). This is seriously flammable, so be careful.
  • Palette knife (smaller knives make less of a mess, and you’ll find yourself using less paint)
  • Two containers with lids that hold your thinner and walnut or linseed oil while painting
  • 10″x13″ paint palette
  • Storage box like a tackle or tool box
  • Canvas to paint on (stretch it yourself or buy pre-stretched and primed)
  • Easel (optional)
  • Drop cloth, painting clothes, and gloves
  • Rags
