What to expect on Oil Painting for Rusty Beginners

Painting with oils is great fun once you get going, so come along to remind yourself that you CAN do it. You will revisit tone, colour mixing, mark making, composition and a still life. Good working practise helps to keep your colours clean.


Materials can be found online and in good art shops. Jacksons’ Art is a fairly comprehensive site with good quality own brand products.

For this class please bring a mix of oil paints including:

  • titanium white
  • alizarin crimzon
  • lemon yellow
  • cobalt blue

In addition you will need:

  • charcoal, pencils, eraser
  • sketchbook, about A4
  • rags,
  • brushes (a mix of sizes including large),
  • odour freesolvents,
  • your palette – disposable is fine
  • palette knife
  • an A4 pad and an A3 pad of oil painting paper
  • a bag for your rubbish
