OTHER SUPPLIES

Palette knife (best if shaped like a trowel), Palette (paper pallet is best - find the waxy type. Don’t get trays with cups, please! )                                                                               

Brushes:

Oil painting brushes should be short haired.  The weight of the paint will not work with rounded or long bristled brushes.  You always want a brush that retains the chiseled tip when you snap the bristles back with your finger- Especially with the synthetic sables that you choose.  Don’t pick a brush by what the store tells you is for oil painting.  It has only to do with the bristles that you want. 

  • 3 Bristle brushes (white pig hair brushes -  ¼”, ½”,  & 1” – less than 1” in length)
  • 4 Various Sable or synthetic sable flat firm brushes, Filbert or Flat (1/8”, ¼”, ½”,  & 1” – all hair length should be no longer than ½” except the 1” which can be around 1” in length also.)
  • One Hake or Mop brush (this brush is a long haired soft, fuzzy brush - like a rabbit’s tail -- used to smooth the paint strokes.)
  • Canvas and photo or still life objects to paint from.

THE FOLLOWING SUPPLIES WILL BE NEEDED TO PAINT IN PASTEL. 

PASTEL PAINTERS– Chalk pastels are highly suggested

 

Colors Choose a few really inexpensive sets with many bright colors to add to your pastel collection.  Use the list above and pick as many variations that are near those colors and flesh tones as you could possibly have. The more colors you have the better.  I also want you to bring black charcoal.  Conte’ Crayons and white charcoal are helpful.  You will need all of the following.  Some hard pastels, at least 6 variations of pastel pencils including a dark brown, a soft blue, black, white, a red, a cool green & some flesh tones.  You will also need a soft white stick.  I use all brands from nupastel, conte’, schmenke, grumbacher, and cheaper brands for quick fillers of brighter colors.

 

Supplies Smooth drawing board, pastel paper in colors that are mid to dark range, I like pea green, blues, rust, and many neutral colors that are found in flesh.  If you work slow and want to do a portrait that is on a finer paper … get an expensive fine pumas sand paper. You will also need a white gum eraser.  If you wish to wear gloves you can.  Paper towels are helpful.  Kleenex tissue are good and soft for smoothing (please be careful to not bring the special lanolin or oily Kleenex).

 

 

 

 

Advice on pastels: The more you have, the better your work will be.  But, start with some great sets.  Make sure that you get one or two expensive sticks (Schmincke, Unison, or Sennilier are the best).  Buy some really cheap sets as well.  The best variety makes for the greatest experience.  Grumbacher makes great sets that encompass subjects like portraits or landscapes.  Have fun in picking color.
