Supplies needed:
Sketchbook and your usual drawing materials.
Photographs that you would like to paint from – make sure you have lots of good photos
Painting supports – I prefer panels but stretched canvas is fine. Or Arches Oil Painting paper taped to a support. Please keep to a smaller size for this workshop – no larger than 12×16
Sturdy portable easel if you have one. Or – bring a smaller one if you have it – it will work better for this class. We only have large easels in the studio.

Paper towels, and your usual set of oil painting supplies

Colours , what you usually use, but please be sure to also bring:
