What do I need?
Here's a quick run down of the equipment and materials I will be using throughout the tutorials
Paper used is an Acrylic Paper, mine is made by Winsor & Newton and is called Galleria, it has a texture similar to canvas.
Alternatives would be to use a heavyweight watercolour paper or mount board offcuts. These will all act and work in very similar ways.
The acrylic paint is a mixture (whatever I have to hand) of W&N Galleria, W&N Artists Acrylic Colour and Liquitex.
I talk through the colours on the free video but include:
- Pthalo Blue
- Cadmium Red
- Cadmium Yellow
- Pthalo Green
- Yellow Ochre
- Burnt Sienna
I will add other colours now and again including:
- Burnt Umber
- Permanent Rose
- Cadmium Orange
- Cerulean Blue
- Paynes Grey
...but these colours don’t need to be exactly the same (I talk about this a lot on the lessons).
Brushes & extra kit
Brushes are Freestyle by Liquitex or Galleria by Winsor & Newton
Additional kit can but doesn’t have to include:
- An old toothbrush
- Old decorators brushes
- A palette knife
- A piece of sponge
- An old rag
- An old credit card
- Foam rubber or anything to stamp marks with
- Paper ephemera for collage
- A glue stick
- PVA glue
- Conte sticks (or pastels or coloured pencils)
