to become comfortable using oils.

to understand the importance of light versus dark, bright versus dull.

to complete a medium size painting.

to fall in love with oils.

Please bring the following:

Paint: burnt umber, ultramarine blue, titanium white, cadmium yellow pale, sap green, viridian, cobalt blue, yellow ochre pale.

Brushes: flats #00, 0, 2, 4. Just bring a variety of small to medium sizes. I use long flat brushes by Isabey, called Isacryl. They are available from Blick’s, but you need not go to the same expense. Flat and round are the best for this painting.

Canvas, 16 x 20.

Pastel pencil, terra cotta color.

Kneaded eraser

Sansador, odorless mineral spirits

Linseed oil

Two palette knives, #2.

Palette – whatever surface you are comfortable with. I use an opaque glass palette. It is slick and non-absorbent.

Blue painters cloths or paper towels.

Each of the 4 sessions (November 9, 10, 11, and 12) is different from the others.
