A good starting point for paint is using a basic limited primary palette, one that
includes one warm and one cool of each primary color.
Ultramarine or Cobalt (cool) Alizarin Crimson or Rose
Cerulean, Prussian, or Turquoise (warm) Cadmium Red or Vermillion
Additional colors that
Aureolin, Cad. Light, Lemon Yellow (cool) Sepia, Burnt Sienna, or
Cad. Medium, Raw Sienna, Quin. Gold (warm)
A couple of round brushes with a good point, in a medium and smaller size.
Suggestion: Size 12 and Size 6
A flat brush at least 1 inch wide
Other brushes – A quill brush and a small flat hard bristled brush for scrubbing
My preference is Arches #140 Cold Press 100% rag in a block
Paper is an investment, it can be pricey. Use those Micheal’s coupons!
Brands to consider: Arches, Strathmore, Bee, or Fabriano
