Do not buy any materials until the course is confirmed as running. Materials Required :
Middle range oil paints such as Daler Rowney Georgian range or Winsor and Newton Winton range.
Brushes: Hogs Hair are a good all-round brush to use but some synthetic oil brushes are better for detail and accuracy. If you are on a budget, then a few long flat brushes are best as they can be used to paint most things and they last longer. Some good makes are Winsor and Newton, Signet by Daler Rowney and Da Vinci. Canvases: Use an A3 pad of real canvases, not paper with a canvas texture printed onto it! Some commonly available makes are Pebeo Pop Art Canvas Pads, Jax Art Maestro Canvas Painting Pad.
Thinners and Mediums: You need to thin oil paint and traditionally this is down with artists turpentine (Low odour please), or nowadays there are alternatives such as Sansodor, and Zest it which smell nicer! There are also mediums that we put into the paint to change its texture, the traditional one is linseed oil, but a modern alternative is Liquin Original by Winsor and Newton which is easy to use and speeds up the drying times.
Rags/clothes to rub in paint. White spirit or brush cleaner to clean brushes.
Painting is messy so you will need an old shirt or similar and newspaper to protect the tables.
