• Palette—I use a hand-held wood palette, glass backed with mid-tone grey paper works well too 

  • Palette knife

  • Paper towels

  • Medium cups

  • Jar for turps (Two old condiment jars work well)

  • Gamsol or non-toxic alternative

  • Linseed oil, or medium of your choice—I’ve been liking the Winsor and Newton painting medium 

  • Artist Tape

  • Viewfinder

  • Paint box or tackle box to hold everything 

Brushes: Bring a wider variety if you have them, but I would recommend at least the following:

  • Filbert bristle (sizes approximately no. 1, 4, 6, 10)

  • Filbert or flat, Sable or Synthetic Mongoose (2, 4, 6, 8)

Painting Surfaces: One larger painting surface for the workshop, around 16” x 20” or 18” x  24.” Create a nice surface to work on—panel or a smooth canvas, prep your surface before you arrive with gesso, sanding between coats.

Also bring around 5 small surfaces for compositional studies (around 8” x10.”) These could be primed paper, small pieces of smooth un-stretched canvas or something similar, tone these a very light shade of grey.

Paint: Bring a wider variety of paints if you have them, any artist grade brand is great, I’m using a lot of Gamblin these days. Something like this:

Titanium White, Naples Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Red, Alizarine Crimson, Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Ivory Black, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo blue, Cadmium Green.
