Sample supply list

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 or a retarder.

  • Alizarin crimson or Permanent Rose. I have added Transparent Earth Red and really like it!
  • Hansa yellow or Indian Yellow
  • Yellow ochre
  • Ultramarine blue or Phtalo blue -  I like both, but Phtalo is my my fav.
  • Sap green
  • Titanium white
  •  canvas or panel to paint on
  • Palette knife
  • Sketch pad and pencils
  • Paper towels
  • Palette  16x20 . You can use  plexi glass, glass, a roll wax paper, acrylic and oil disposable pad
  • Paint medium to help base coat your canvas and block in color. I fill a flip top bottle (think small dish liquid bottle) with 80% Liquin and 20% Damar Varnish to thin and speed the drying for oils. if you are working in acrylics use Liquitex glazing medium and water Great for base layers
  • Odorless mineral spirit and a sealed container for cleaning brushes. There are several Eco friendly products out there now as well.

Taught by Lauren Adams
An abstract painting can evoke mood or suggest specific reference, but it can also be about painting itself. Whether you desire to work in abstraction from nature, or purely non-representationally, you will learn to trust your intuition
