Workshop: Limited-palette Figure Painting
Instructor: Sarah Sedwick
Bring your usual painting kit, making sure to include these items:
Palette - disposable paper palettes are great, the larger the better! Size must be at least 12x16. White or gray are fine, but I prefer white.
Palette knife – not a teeny tiny one. You should be able to scoop up a pile of paint with it.
Rags or paper towels
Solvent - odorless mineral spirits (I use Gamsol) or Turpenoid
Jars - two small glass jars with tight fitting lids
Paint - I use M. Graham and Gamblin. These are the Zorn palette colors you must have:
- Titanium white
- Cadmium red
- Yellow ochre
- Ivory black
Brushes - I use both synthetic, nylon bristle and natural hog bristle brushes, but it's up to your preference. I recommend a range of sizes from #2 on up - (rounds & filberts).
Canvas or other painting surface:
- bring a few inexpensive canvas panels or a pad of canvas paper for short exercises
- bring two surfaces for longer duration paintings - 9x12” or larger.
