Suggested Oil Painting Materials

OIL PAINTS

You can paint perfectly well with a small number of colours – even four primaries (in bold) and white. So you don’t need all these colours, but because people ask, I list below the full range I use. Winton brand are fine for most colours, whereas Cadmium colours (Yellows, Reds and Oranges) are much stronger in artist’s quality if you can afford them.

 

    • Titanium White – Large tube(200ml) 

  • Chromatic Colours

    • Cadmium Yellow Light, Lemon Yellow or Winsor Yellow
    • Cadmium Yellow
    • Cadmium Orange
    • Cadmium Red or Cadmium Scarlet
    • Permanent Rose or Permanent Alizarin Crimson
    • Magenta or Quinacridone Purple
    • Phthalo Blue
    • Ultramarine Blue
    • Viridian Hue
    • Permanent Green Light

    Earth Colours

    • Yellow Ochre
    • Indian Red or Mars Violet Deep
    • Burnt Sienna or Transparent Oxide Red (Michael Harding)
    • Raw Umber or Van Dyck Brown
    • Ivory Black

SUITABLE SUPPORTS

Hardboard primed with Acrylic Primer (Gesso). I use white – faced hardboard primed twice on the brown side.

Stretched Canvas

Canvas Board

NOTE: Many cheaper canvases and canvas boards are very absorbent and would benefit from an additional coat of gesso. 

BRUSHES  (The artist sells sets of 12 professional quality brushes at £60)

Long handles preferred

Hog hair brushes sizes between 2 – 10

Synthetic hair sizes between 0 – 2

PALETTE KNIFE

PALETTE (any smooth, non absorbent surface, preferably 12” x 16” or larger)

DIPPER (container for holding solvent)

WHITE SPIRIT / Low Odour Thinners / Zest It

LINSEED OIL

RAGS / Good quality kitchen tissue (such as “Plenty”)

OLD TELEPHONE DIRECTORY (if you can find any)
