Palette, Brushes, & Knives
Colors that I use:
Yellows: Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Yellow medium, and Yellow Ochre
Blues: Cerulean Blue, Cobalt Blue, and Ultramarine
Reds:Alisarin Crimson, and Cadmium Red Light
White: Titanium White
Black I use only with the yellows to make a more interesting green.
Brushes: My brushes are the economy brushes, I buy them from Prizm Art Supply. I don't like using expensive brushes because I sometimes forget to clean my brushes. This way it's just easier for me to go out and buy straight from the store, knowing I am not spending a lot of money on brushes.
I use a variety of knives for my paintings. This gives my paintings texture, and allows me to have more control on difficult subjects.
Solvents and Medium:
I use Odorless Turpenoid to clean my brushes. I find it better than turpentine. Turpentine has a strong order that has to be ventilated.
I like using Winsor & Newton Liquin Fine Detail.
It gives me nice control over my paint.
When the painting is dry I can take a cloth and use it as a varnish to give the painting a shine.
These are some of the things that I use to paint. My palette my change from time to time, or when I am out plein air painting.
