Painting 101/102 – Supply List  Marian Strangfeld, Instructor
Website:  www.marianstrangfeld.com

I am delighted that you are joining our class.   Here are suggestions for purchasing supplies. I am recommending water-based oils as they don’t require solvents, and clean up easily with soap and water.  However, if you already have traditional oils or acrylics, please feel free to use them. 

 Water Mixable Oils -  WINSOR NEWTON ARTISAN  or  HOLBEIN DUO.  (or Traditional oils or Acrylics if you have them) Titanium White, French Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Red Deep, Cadmium Yellow Pale, Naples Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Raw Umber. Juana Brilliant, Permanent Sap Green.   (OK to substitute colors if needed) 

Oil colors that are nice to have down the road  but not at all necessary to start:            
Permanent Rose, Yellow Ochre, Alizarin Crimson, Burnt Umber, Turquoise Blue, Cadmium Yellow Medium.  In DUO brand only: Lavender, Leaf Green, Horizon Blue, Ice Green.   

Acrylic Paint  -just one tube- any inexpensive brand for toning canvas:    Raw Sienna OR Yellow Ochre

Brushes: A selection of  FLATS and ROUNDS. Try to purchase quality brushes, as poorly made brushes can be frustrating to use.  Choose long handled brushes meant for oils or acrylics, either synthetic  (usually white or gold color)  or natural bristle.   Synthetics are perfectly fine, and can be quite good.   I use them myself.  FLATS:  choose a large, medium and small – ranging from about ¾ in to ¼ in.  ROUNDS: choose a medium and a small - for detail work.  

Canvas: Small:  8x10 stretched canvas or canvas boards for beginning exercises. (1 or 2) Stretched canvases, any size, for  your paintings.  

Disposable palette paper pad.   for oils  -9 x 12 pad  ( freezer paper works too)  

Also bring:    A jar for water, a few paper towels, and an old shirt/ apron for yourself. And your ideas for paintings:  Bring a collection of landscape photos that you might enjoy painting.   You might like to work from photos you've taken yourself, but it's OK to find photos on-line or in magazines.  Whatever inspires you!   

Finally   I’ve  also put together a really detailed/ specific list of suggested supplies -if you would like to order from Blick Art.   Please feel free to email me if that would be helpful to you.     marianstrangfeld@gmail.com
