Bellow is the supply list for my 2-day figure painting class. We will be painting in oils. Day 1 will be focused on a warm under painting. Day 2 will focus on painting the grisaille. This list covers supplies for both days. Please purchase this exact list if you have never painted. If you have previous painting experience and oil paint supplies already I’ve designated where you can substitute your own materials. All these supplies can be purchased at two stores online. If you like, two people may split/share paint without any issue. To sign up or if you have questions please contact me via my contact page HERE or contact the Artists Attic.
