Here are my list of recommended materials and supplies. Please don’t feel you have to go out and buy everything, start with what you have and you can always add along the way if you prefer.
Colours to Buy
For most lessons I will be using Golden fluid acrylics as I love the high pigment strength they have, here are my recommended colours, however you are free to use any other brand or if you prefer to work with oil that’s fine to you will just have to wait between layers.
Typically I would shop around for the best price but I do find Cass Art quite reasonable: Cass Art
Phthalo Blue (Green Shade) – Also know as Winsor Blue in other brands
Hansa Yellow Opaque (if using Golden Fluid) or Cadmium Yellow Light (in other brands)
Pyrrole Red Light (if using Golden Fluid) or Cadmium Red (in other brands)
Burnt Umber Light
Phthalo Green (Blue Shade)
Titanimum White (Larger Pot)
Nice to Have but not essential:
Pyrrole Orange (if using Golden Fluid) or Cadmium Orange (in other brands)
1 – 2 pots for water (I use old sauce or jam jars)
Apron or old clothes (acrylic won’t come out!)
Rags or blue roll (I use old towels or clothes)
Acrylic Gesso Primer – Art Discount or Cass Art or Amazon or Ken Bromley (most acrylic gesso primers will be fine so if you are in another country just search for the options available)
