For those of you who consider yourselves more experienced art adventurers, I have added some bonus paint colours to the supply list! Look it over - and bring what you have!Bonus Colours:
You can bring these (if you have them)
- Pthalo Blue
- Ultramarine Blue
- Quinacridone Rose
- Transparent Red Iron Oxide
- Nickel Azo Yellow
- Cadmium Yellow Deep
NOTE: Fluid or Heavy Body paints are just fine. Except for that WHITE!
- Golden Gloss Medium (essential) and a small container to hold it.
- White Gesso (any)
- *Bring any other mediums that you might have, gels, pastes, etc. to try; they are all fun and we will discuss their benefits and drawbacks.
- We will be using these for surface preparation - if you have time, check out my video and do this ahead of time so that we can get right down to painting on Day 1!
- A variety of supports - these can be stretched canvas, canvas boards, birch panels that have been sealed with acrylic gel medium - sizes between 9x12 and 16x20 are most manageable. A minimum of two, and no maximum.
- Disposable Palette Paper
- Masking tape
- A few sheets of watercolour paper for exercises
- An assortment of brushes, both bristle and synthetic. Essential: A ¾”angle brush, a ⅜” angle brush, a round brush (size 6 or 8), and a size 2 liner brush.

- Vine charcoal (a few pieces)
- Inktense pencils (Willow and Bark are my favourites)
- A China Marker (black or white)
- Shop Cloth (Blue cotton paper towel)
- A spray bottle - my favourite is a giant Zep one with an adjustable nozzle from Home Depot, not a wee delicate mister!

- New: A tablecover, and another for the floor (if you are a messy painter!)
- An easel (not necessary, but some people like to work on them)
