Message from the instructor, Lynn Stender:

We are using Acrylic Paint.   I will go over the color wheel but the basic colors you will need are:  (starter sets are great if this is your first time using Acrylics.)
  • Titanium White
  • Black/ Paynes Grey
  • Cadmium Yellow
  • Cerulean Blue
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Cobalt Blue
  • Cadmium Red
  • Sap Green
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Camium red
  • Burnt Umber
  • Raw Umber
  • Purple
  • Viridian Green
I will be working on a small Canvas, 8 x 10 or 11 x 14. Whatever size you are comfortable with is fine.
I use a set of Acrylic Brushes, which include a 1/2 flat, 1/4 flat, 3 rounds, #6, #8, #12.
You will need two containers of water, paper towels or paint rags.
I use a Masterson covered palette with a sponge to keep my paints wet. If you don’t have a palette, paper plates or palette paper pads will work.
There are many starter sets available on line, , or Amazon. Liqutex, and Golden brands have complete sets.
