Painting with Oils  

Discover how to use oils in painting landscapes and still life. Learn to use under-painting to develop your work, as well as composition, color and light. Designed for the beginner or any painter who wants to learn a new medium; all are welcome.

Please note: We will be using oil-based paints, NOT water-soluble oils.

Materials List

  • Oil Paints (small tubes, academic or professional grade)
    • Titanium White
    • Ultramarine Blue
    • Cadmium Red Light
    • Cadmium Yellow Hue
  • Small jar of refined linseed oil
  • Brushes – You'll need at least four synthetic oil/acrylic brushes. Make sure one is a large brush, at least one inch flat (usually the number is a 10 or a 12). An 8, 4, and 1 Flats or Brights are recommended. You can use bristle brushes if you have them, but synthetic brushes are easier to clean and keep their shape longer.
  • 8 X 10, 11 X 14 or 16 X 20 inch primed canvas
  • Paper towels
  • Tee shirt rags – Tee shirt material has less lint. Cut up an old tee shirt or old bathroom towel(s) to make rags
  • Palette – A variety of palettes available. You can use a quarter-inch thick 11 X 14 plate of glass or disposable palettes. Disposable palettes are less messy.
  • Hand mirror
  • Palette knife
  • Small portable Easel
  • Small bottle of odorless mineral spirits, ex. Turpenoid or Gamsol
