Suggested Oil Painting Materials

OIL PAINTS

You can paint well with a small number of colours – even four primaries (**) and white. Below is the full range I use. A good selection is in Bold, with alternative colours listed alongside. Winton brand are fine for most colours, whereas Cadmium colours are much stronger in artist’s quality if you can afford them.

  • Titanium White – Large tube(200ml)

 Chromatic Colours

  • Cadmium Yellow Light or Lemon Yellow
  • Cadmium Yellow **
  • Cadmium Orange
  • Cadmium Red **or Cadmium Scarlet
  • Permanent Rose **
  • Magenta
  • Dioxazine Purple
  • Phthalo Blue **
  • Viridian Hue
  • Permanent Green Light

Earth Colours

  • Yellow Ochre
  • Indian Red or Mars Violet Deep
  • Burnt Siennaor Transparent Oxide Red
  • Raw Umber or Van Dyck Brown
  • Ivory Black or Indigo

 

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 £45)

Long handles preferred

Hog hair brushes sizes between 2 – 10

Synthetic hair sizes between 0 – 2
