painting the figure
module 1: supplies
In this series of videos, I will go through each of my tools that I regularly use to create my oil paintings. You won't need every single tool I show you. Instead, these videos will serve as a reference guide for everything that you can use for your journey as an oil painter.
So what is essential to get started in this class?
Here is the most basic list:
A palette (wood, plastic or glass)
Viva paper towel roll or cotton rags
Trekell 400F #8 & #10 Long Flat, 400KF #2 or #4
Trekell Spectrum Series #6
Rosemary and Co. Ivory Flat #10
Rosemary and Co. Series 279 #6
RGM palette knife, style 31
Princeton Catalyst Wedge W01
Double Palette Cup with screw caps
Centurion OP DLX Linen Panels (available as 6-packs)
I will show you more items that you may decide to add to your inventory, but this list will get you started. As we move through the demonstrations I will show some of the other tools in action, which may inspire you to pick those up, but this list is what you will need to get started with my course. The supplies might cost you around $200(minus the easel), but check for sales on the main art supplier websites; you can get discounts for spending money at one store (or even ask your local art supply stores if they offer deals on purchases over a certain amount.)
