This class is open to all levels, but some experience will be helpful as this is not an introductory course.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please wear suitable clothing that will not matter if it gets marked.

Advice from tutor Thuline regarding what to bring:

  • To draw an outline: Pencil (soft pencils preferred, 3B, or softer)/rubber
  • Suggested Basic pallet:
    Cadmium red (or variation), Yellow ochre, Cadmium yellow pale or lemon, Ultramarine, titanium white (is more pigmented than other whites), Burnt umber
    Other suggested colours:
    Cerulean blue, Windsor blue, Burnt sienna, Viridian green, sap green, Turquois and any other colours you like using. (Turqoise and Winsor blue are very useful when doing seascapes) If you decide to buy some of the cheap boxes with small tubes, I advise to also buy a better quality burnt umber and Ultramarine. (Even the bigger tubes in the works are better)
  • Brushes: Please bring a selection of big and small brushes. Personally, I like the flat and softer brushes. A great pack is sold by Royal and Langnickel 12 Brush value pack.(The brushes have light blue handles) These can be used for both acrylic and Watercolour. (online)
  • Sponges and an old toothbrush
  • Palette:
    For acrylic you don’t need a pallet with compartments, Just a rim on the side. I tend to just use the large lid of a plastic storage box.
    Paper tissues and baking paper (this is to create a wet pallet), there are similar more expensive versions of this available from any art shop.
  • Cloth or tissue to clean brushes
  • Water containers (minimum 2)
  • To work on you can use:
    I like the Cranford paper they sell in Youdells. And use a light coloured paper (usually champagne or Ivory). Half a sheet is a perfect size.
    You can also Acrylic paper. (I personally don’t like painting on it)

Are there any additional costs?
