yellow Ochre PY 42, or Yellow Oxide (Great for Mixing)
Sap green or any warm green (mixture & great for mixing)
Cadmium Red or hue / an orange
Brushes bring a variety - flat, filbert, round. I use mainly bristle brushes, but you'll want 1 or 2 soft brushes a flat and a round
Bring extra panels or a canvas pad for practice and quick studies. They can be
at least 8 - 5x7 or 6x8
Plan on 2 - 3 panels a day 9x12, 11 x 14, 12x12 12x16. These are my favorite sizes. I like to have a variety. some time a long
skin is fun to have - 6 x12 / 8 x 16proportions
Feel free to bring what you have.
A portable easel - I use a tripod with a
guerrilla easel attachment. *** I have a few extras - see below.
A flat palette to mix your paints -

*** I have a few extra plein air easels if you need one let me know right away and I'll hold one for you. I rent these for $ 10 for the workshop and use that to go towards new easels.
