Brush Up! Beginning Acrylic Painting with Marta Kaemmer

Acrylic paint – tubes: cadmium yellow medium, cadmium red light, quinacridone magenta, permanent green light, cerulean blue, ultramarine blue, burnt sienna, titanium white, ivory black. Raw umber and yellow ochre are also good neutrals, (or bring what you have) Note- I recommend heavy body acrylics rather than Liquitex basics, which are too thin.

Palette and palette knife (tupperware, wet paper towel and wax paper is a good self made, stay wet palette.)

Brushes - 3 to 6 of differing sizes and shape, synthetic and bristle, filberts and squares, plus one flat 1” wide

Canvas panels and at least one prestretched canvas, at least 11x14 inches

Artist tape, paper towels, spray bottle

Optional:

Acrylic mediums (not essential for beginners -acrylic glazing medium is good for thinning acrylics, matt or gloss medium-good for impasto and collage)

Paper (Bristol, Strathmore 300 or any heavier paper for wet mediums)

Gesso (for preparing paper, surfaces to paint on)

Keep a sketchbook!!!!!
