Paint Better Faster


Learn a unique approach to help you complete your landscape paintings in just four steps. By the end of the class, you will be able to transfer sketches to canvas, use a value finder, mix the right colors and identify hard and soft edges. Canvas is provided. Students must provide additional materials. Ages 18+

We will be painting all new landscapes for those who would like to repeat the class!


Materials and Supplies

For this course, each student will need to bring their own Oil Paints. Recommended paints are:

· White-Titanium White, 150 ml tube (all other tubes should be 40 ml)

· Cool Yellow-Cadmium Yellow Light or Cadmium Lemon Yellow

· Warm Yellow-Cadmium Yellow Deep or Hansa Yellow Deep

· Warm Red-Cadmium Red Light

· Cool Red-Quinacridone Red or Alizarin Crimson (Alizarin Red Permanent will work but is harder to find)

· Warm Blue-Thalo Blue

· Cool Blue-Ultramarine Blue

· Purple-Dioxizine Purple or Carbazole Violet

· Paint tube sizes vary. You will need approximately 40 ml of the colors listed (37 or 50 would be fine), and at least 150 ml of the white (a larger tube is fine).

· Also, bring a box of facial tissues for cleaning the palette knives as we paint.

We will be focusing primarily on the use of the palette knife. We will have one Creative Mark T3 palette knife available for each student but you are welcome to bring your own.

We will also have table easels available but you are welcome to bring your own portable easel if you have one. Please take precautions to protect your apparel and automobile from possible contact with wet oil paint.

Each student will be provided with a 9" x 12" and an 11" x 14" canvas. You will be responsible for storing your wet canvases and transporting them from and to class. Please take precautions to protect your apparel and automobile from possible contact with wet paint. You can purchase canvas carriers, or unused pizza boxes will work just fine.
