Supply List Painting with Color Confidence1.  2014

For questions  email dawn@dawnart.com

If you already have paints, bring what you have but this is what you need for class. Supplies available at Utrecht or Binders or other art supply stores.

I prefer working in oils because my mixture will stay wet for the class. Acrylic will  dry quickly  so you will need to keep them wet with water  and retarder.

These are the primary colors. Buy the professional brands in these three colors. I have the pigment codes below. Use the pigment codes as a guide to buy the right color as color names change all the time.
  • Red - permanent rose/ quinacridone red- pigment code PV19  (You may use Alizarin Crimson instead)     
  • Yellow -  cadmium  yellow,  or hue - pigment code PY35    
  • Blue - Phtalo Blue   green or blue shade  fine -pigment code PB15 (You may use Ultramarine Blueinstead)     
  • Titanium white   5OZ Tube 
  • Yellow Ochre or Yellow Oxide
  • Beginning brush kit with a mix of bristle and soft brushes.
  • 9x12,12x12 Canvas  or larger. I will be using 12x12 or 12x16
  • Acrylic and oil disposable Palette Pad 9 x12 . You can use a roll wax paper
  • Palette knife plastic or metal
  • Sketch pad 
  • Pencil
