Painting with an open mind. Learn to make bold decisions on the fly without agonizing over them.

What they will learn: From the reference photos I provide, you will learn to get over fears in a painting by making bold decisions quickly. Using daring compositions and simple block-in techniques you will paint 20 paintings in 2.5 days with no fear.

Supply List:

Becoming a good painter doesn’t require a lot of talent just lots of practice and good equipment. If you want to cheap out on paint, brushes and other essentials because this is just a hobby and you’re not going to spend the money on the goods it takes to paint, I suggest you try macramé as a hobby. Cheap supplies will prevent you from achieving any sort of success and you will be frustrated. In the end, will have wasted your money anyway. Sorry if that sounds harsh but over the 25 years I have been teaching it’s the truth. Xx Oo

Try to use artist grade paints (Gamblin or M Graham etc..) Please no craft paints

Palette The bigger the better. Strip-off palettes are great. Glass. Please NO egg cartons or Styrofoam meat trays or ice cream pail lids. You need something stable that will not move around when you’re mixing.

BRUSHES Good quality hog bristle brushes. No Dollar store brushes. 2,4,6,8,10, Flats. Princeton are great. 1- 3” cheap big bristle brush for blending. #1 or 2 taklon liner brush Synthetic brushes are okay for acrylics.

Brush washer,

A good metal leak-proof bush washer is a very good item to invest in. You will thank me for it. If you’re using acrylics a yogurt container with a kitchen scritchy thing in the bottom will work great.
