Students will work in BOTH acrylics and oils. Sorry - - NO exceptions.

I didn’t set out to be a weird painter, it just turned out that way. In this 6-hour class, we’ll do a step-by-step painting all together as I share with you all the tricks I use these days to produce my “Abstract-Realism” paintings. Some of these tricks are: 

Abstract Under-Painting

Oil over acrylics

Transparent Glazing

Jumbo Jet Black Pencils

Masking

Scratching (just where it itches!)

And MORE!

 SUPPLY LIST-- Oil and/or Acrylic

NOTE: This is not a medium-specific class. 

You may work in whichever of these mediums you prefer: 

Acrylic, Oil, Acrylic & Oil or water-soluble oils. 

Here is a list of recommended supplies, if you feel the need for one.

CANVAS!

ACRYLICS:

All the Matisse/Derivan colors are excellent along with many others. AOC is a gret time to experiment! If you are just getting started in acrylics, a slightly limited palette is a good idea. Here are some suggestions:  

Warm Blue (Phthalo Blue)

Cool Blue (Ultramarine Blue)

Warm Red (Naphthol Scarlet)

Cool Red (Brilliant Alizarine)

Warm Yellow (Yellow Deep)

Cool Yellow (Yellow Light Hansa)

Burnt Sienna

Raw Umber

Titanium White

Medium: Golden GAC 100 (Best) or Liquitex Gloss Medium and Varnish (Very Good), or Jerry’s Acrylic Medium and Varnish (Good Enough!)

OILS:   

All the Charvin and Lukas 1862 colors are excellent, along with many others. AOC is a great time to experiment and try something new. If you are just getting started in oils, a slightly limited palette is a good idea. Here are some guidelines:  

Warm Blue (Phthalo Cyan)

Cool Blue (Ultramarine Blue Deep)

Warm Red (French Red Light)

Cool Red (Carmine Lake)

Warm Yellow (Naples Yellow)

Cool Yellow (Intense LemonYellow)

Titanium White ALKYD 

Raw Umber

Red Oxide

OPTIONAL:

Purple (French Violet)

Green (Imperial Green)

Naples Yellow

Ivory Black

MEDIUM: Charvin Quick Dry Painting Medium 

or Winsor Newton Liquin-- 250 ml

BRUSHES:

Any normal assortment of bristle brushes will do, but you must have at least one large “Chip Brush”-- 2” wide or more.   My favorites are Filbert bristle brushes.

For signing my paintings, I always use a Winsor Newton Series 7-- size 1 or 2.

OTHER: 

Besides, these bring a table-top easel if you have one; a bucket or two for cleaning, a couple rags. Dan will supply any “odd-ball” tools, if they apply to this particular class, but you might want to buy your own “Jumbo Jet Black” pencil distributed by Jerry’s. These work well with both oil and acrylics.
