-Acrylic paint in the following colors: ultramarine blue, quinacridone or permanent red, yellow ochre, hansa yellow, cerulean blue, burnt sienna, burnt umber, titanium white, mars, lamp or ivory black.
-Water in a jar
-A selection of brushes: a 1”, good quality, house painters sash brush (no angle, from hardware store), a larger flat (No 10) and some smaller flat brushes for details, a No. 10 round, and a few small detail rounds size 0 to 2, it is nice to have one script liner (a long bristled round detail brush) size 2 to 4 as well. The white synthetic brushes are fine for either acrylic or oil. You can also have a sable or two for oil if desired, but not necessary.
-Rags or paper towels for dabbing and cleaning.
-Palette: you cam use disposable palette paper in a palette box, or a reusable palette in plastic or wood. Please do not use a watercolor palette with little depressions for mixing. You want a large, flat palette with lots of space for daubs of paint and mixing. I use a 12x16 inch palette.
-Canvas, canvas panels, or wood panels (sizes vary according to project)
- Community Education
