Supplies List for Sarah Sedwick, Painting the Dynamic Still Life in Oil or Acrylic

  • Bring your usual painting kit, including these items (or an equivalent):
  • Palette – disposable paper palettes are great, the larger the better!  At least 12×16”.  I prefer white, but the gray ones are fine.  Or, bring your usual travel palette.
  • Palette knife – not a teeny one. You want to be able to scoop up a pile of paint with it.
  • Rags or paper towels (I like disposable blue shop towels, available at hardware stores)
  • Solvent: odorless mineral spirits (I use Gamsol) or Turpenoid
  • 2 glass jars with tight-fitting lids
  • Paint – I use M. Graham and Gamblin.  Please include the following colors (starred colors are optional):
    ○ Titanium white
    ○ Cadmium red
    ○ Cadmium yellow
    ○ Ultramarine blue
    ○ Lemon or Hansa yellow*
    ○ Cerulean Blue*
    ○ Burnt sienna*
    ○ Alizarin crimson*
    ○ Yellow ochre*
    ○ Dioxazine Purple*
  • Brushes – I use taklon (synthetic, white bristles) or hog bristle, but it’s up to your preference. I recommend a range of sizes from #2 on up.  Rounds and Filberts.
  • View Finder
    • Purchasing a plastic view finder from an art supply store is great, small investment.  A Tool used daily
  • Cleanup:  Murphy’s oil soap, or The Master’s Brush Cleaner and Preserver
  • Canvases or other painting surfaces:
    • Bring something less expensive, like canvas panels or Arches oil paper for our timed exercises. Dividing an 11×14 canvas works well.
    • One larger (11×14 or 8×10 or similar) canvas for a longer duration painting.
  • Easel (and side table – optional)
    • A plein air easel or French easel
    • A TV table or side table for your palette (the smaller the better)

Chairs are provided by Sequoia

Eric Jacobsen’s Supplies List – Painting Large format Paintings in the Studio

  • Colors:  Titanium White
Cad Yellow Lemon Cadmium Yellow Light Cadmium Orange Cadmium Red Light Alizarin Crimson Burnt Sienna
Viridian Green Ultramarine Blue Cerulean Blue
  • Brushes:
  Any high quality brush will do, but a suggested brand and sizes are
    Utrecht, flats and/or bright bristle, sizes 2-8 for smaller work, larger sizes as suits your needs. Please, don’t bring worn-out brushes.
  • Palette Knife:
  A good palette knife for cleaning palette and painting needs.
  • Palette:
  Use the wooden one provided in your portable easel. Treat it with linseed oil many times over: rub in, let stand, rub in let stand, etc. Your wooden palette is designed to transport and keep wet paint, cleans easily, and doesn’t flap around. Please, no paper palettes.
  • Misc:  Paint thinner, VIVA paper towels, plastic grocery bags, 1-2 squeeze clamps for securing various items to you easel.

Hansa Yellow Light or Cadmium Yellow Light

As we purchase paint colors start with the primary colors- Red, Blue and Yellow plus White, secondonary colors can be mixed; green, purples, orange etc. Of course bring any paint you are used to using.

Brushes; Bristle size 6,4,8 or a good assortment depending on the size of your painting. The larger the canvas the larger the brush. I prefer filbert, but flat, bright and round are great. Also small detail brushes for detail and signing the work of art.

Painting structure:: Canvas size approximated for subject matter, Panels again size for subject matter.

Other Supplies:
A paper palette and holder to transport the paper palette in. These are available at the art supply stores and saves vehicles from color spots. Odorless thinner (Tupernoid is good) and jars for cleaning brushes. A palette knife that will allow the mixing of color ( a drop down profile is good). Paper towels, old rags, napkins used for cleaning brushes, wiping out etc.
Sequoia Gallery does not have easels so bring one for your needs. Tables are available to share so table easels are ok.
Bring what subject you would like to paint or several ideas, photographs, books etc. I can help you decide if desired.

If you have any questions please call me at 503 649-3969. See you in class, Royce
