Suggested Oil Painting Supply List
For the underpainting (these paints are very fast drying and perfect for underpainting):
Winsor & Newton Griffen Alkyd Burnt Umber
Winsor & Newton Griffen Alkyd Titanium White
Gamblin Gamsol Oderless Mineral Spirits to dilute the above paints into almost a "wash"
OIL PAINT COLORS
Gamblin Oil Colors - 37ml Tube
Cadmium Yellow Light
Cadmium Red Deep
Mars Black (because sometimes you just need that pure black!)
OIL PAINTING MEDIUM TO THIN AND MAKE PAINT MORE FLUID AND ALSO FAST DRYING
Winsor & Newton Liquin Medium
Winsor & Newton Liquin Find Detail Medium
WINSOR & NEWTON MONARCH BRUSHES
Filbert & Round sizes - Long Handle
16x20x.75 inch Primed Canvas for Acrylic or Oil Paint - get a mid-priced brand
Table Top - I used one at Blick - so they should have them in stock. Or, they have them on Amazon, but Blick may have better prices.
Any hardware store should be able to cut a piece of glass for you.
CONTAINER FOR ALL THE SUPPLIES
I use a tool box from any hardware store. You should store your paints horizontal.
All these supplies get pricey - so these items are my mid-level grade recommendations but try to economize wherever possible! For example, a tube of Cadmium Yellow in the brand I use is $55! But, one tube lasts me for over a year.
