MATERIALS: You are welcome to work in acrylics or oils, whichever you prefer. I recommend beginning with acrylics if you have no painting experience. They are more forgiving when you are learning.
Oils: Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Medium (or Hansa Yellow Medium), Cadmium Red Medium (or Naphthol Crimson), Titanium White; odorless mineral spirits or turpentine with solvent jar; either Liquin (dryer for oil paint) or Japan dryer (available at Home Depot; if you can’t find it I’ll have some extra); roll of paper towels.
Acrylics: Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Medium (or Hansa Yellow Medium), Cadmium Red Medium (or Naphthol Crimson), Titanium White; cloth rag for brushes; water container.
Brushes: (Do not scrimp on your brushes. They are an important investment in yourself. Inexpensive brushes are not going to save you money or time.) Same for oils and acrylics: flats, #2, #4, and #8, at least two of each (buy the best you can afford; I like Robert Simmons/Signet brand); a liner brush (also called a rigger, it has long bristles and is very narrow).
Palette: white enamel tray or disposable palette pad (Masterson makes a “wet” palette I like also).
Canvas: canvas panels (5-10 total) in any of these sizes: 8˝ x 10˝, 9˝ x 12˝, 12˝ x 16˝.
Other: Small sketchbook; pencil and a black Sharpie; vine charcoal (optional); small metal palette knife; roll of paper towels; cloth rag; plastic trash bag.
