"Behind the Scene"
Paints:* In brands that you already have:
Blues as close as possible to ultramarine, thalo, and cobalt
2 yellows as close as possible
to lemon yellow and cadmium yellow light
2 reds as close as
possible to vermillion and magenta
Winsor Newton Burnt sienna if you have it. If not we will discuss in class
Bring any other pigments you like to use.
*If buying I recommend high quality major brands i.e. Winsor Newton, Holbein,
Daniel Smith and some others. If you are beginning and have no supplies, I have, for sale, sets of Maries –
an inexpensive and reasonable quality paint that will do for this class to test the waters and then go
on to the better brands. That said, I would strongly recommend the better brands if you can afford them.
