Oil Painters Materials List

This is the basic list for 'How to Paint with Oils'.  All levels Welcome. 

Note: If you are down for season and don't wish to purchase extended list, we are happy to offer supplies for small fee of $40.- in class, 16x20" Canvas included. (Brushes not incl.) Experienced artists you know the process.

New to Oils: A limited palette helps each artist understand color mixing. Our list is average size for convenience. List can be purchased separately, or in small kits of 12 colors or more. (will be close enough for beginners)

Overtime all oil painters find a palette which they like to work with. 

Eventually you'll discover different color palettes with portrait painting, landscape or plein-air,  abstracts, et.

Different subjects, different palettes.  To keep in mind, almost all of  the above can still be achieved with

Yellow, Red, Blue, Black and White. 

* Note: If you don't have all art materials, no worries. I have back up and you can pick it up at a later date.
