Required Supplies

INTRODUCTION TO OIL PAINTING SUPPLY LIST You will not need the painting materials on the first day of class – I will supply the first two evenings and discuss items for those who may be unsure of what to buy. Supplies can also be ordered on-line through vendors such as Jerrys Artarama, Cheap Joes, Dick Blick, etc. Oil Paint: Colors needed: (Avoid paint labeled ‘hue’, example: ‘Cadmium Yellow Hue’, as hue means another pigment is substituted. A hue may not be as strongly pigmented.) 1. Titanium white 5. Lemon yellow/Hansa Yellow or Cadmium Yellow Light 2. Alizarin crimson 6. Pthalo (Thalo) blue 3. Cadmium red light 7. Ultramarine blue 4.
