Supply List - Painting Today II PNTG236-36-WI22

Neil McClelland -


For the first class bring whatever paints you generally use—oil, or acrylic. Try to include: Alizarin Crimson or Quinacridone Red, Ultramarine Blue, Lemon Yellow (or equivalent—should say PY3 on the tube), Titanium White (larger tube). For other colours, try to stick to mono-pigments (paints with only one listed pigment). Recommended: Burnt Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Phthalo Blue, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow.

Bring a small canvas or panel, a palette, brushes, rags, and whatever you need to clean your brushes.

Also bring in an interesting, single object which will be the subject of a series of small still life paintings. Also bring something contrasting which you can place your object on or against (such as tin foil, glass, coloured mat board, plastic, metal etc). A small lamp and extension cord would be helpful so you can control the lighting.

If you have some supplies already (mediums, paints, brushes etc) bring whatever you have.

Supplies can be purchased in downtown Victoria at Island Blue (905 Fort St), Art World (860 Yates St) or Opus (512 Herald St). You will receive a student discount at all three stores if you:
1. Let them know at the cash that you are a student at VISA
2. Show proof of registration or payment (your Registration Receipt email from VISA).
