Materials List - Painting the Dynamic Still Life

San Clemente Arts

January 26-28th, 2018

Instructor: Sarah Sedwick


  • Palette  - disposable paper palettes are great, the larger the better! At least 12x16”. I prefer white, but the gray ones are fine. Or bring your usual travel palette.


  • Palette knife - not a teeny one. You want to be able to scoop up a pile of paint with it.


  • Rags or paper towels (I like disposable blue shop towels, available at hardware stores)


  • Solvent: odorless mineral spirits. I recommend Gamsol. Turpenoid is also fine.


  • 2 glass jars with tight-fitting lids

○        one is for clean Gamsol to use while painting, the other is to store dirty      Gamsol.


  • Paint - I use M. Graham brand. Please include the following colors:


○     Titanium white

○     Cadmium red light

○     Alizarin crimson

○     Cadmium yellow

○     Hansa yellow (or a lemon yellow)

○     Yellow ochre*

○     Cerulean Blue

○     Ultramarine blue

○     Dioxazine Purple*

○     Ivory Black*


            *starred colors are optional


  • Medium – I recommend Gamblin’s Solvent Free Gel, but walnut oil or an alkyd medium are also fine.


  • Brushes - I use taklon (synthetic, white bristles) and hog bristle, but it's up to your preference.  A good basic kit is a #2 round, and #4 flat and a #6 flat.


  • View Finder

○     Purchasing a plastic view finder is a great, small investment - optional.

○     A simple view finder can also be make from two L-shaped pieces of cardboard and a paperclip


  • Cleanup: Murphy’s oil soap or The Master’s Brush Cleaner and Preserver


  • Canvases or other painting surfaces:


      Bring something less expensive, like canvas panels, Arches oil paper, or canvas paper for short painting exercises. At least two 11x14” panels, or equivalent.


      Three (11x14 or 8x10, 10x10, or any size you’re comfortable working on for about 3 hours) canvases for longer paintings.
