You will need a canvas of any size (we use 10×10), acrylic paint consisting of blue, red, yellow, black and white. The acrylic paints we use are from Curry’s and we find it is good student-grade paint. The exact names read on our 2L bottles are; bright red (non orange kind), phtahalo blue, bright yellow, black or carbon black and titanium white. Additional colours to have as a bonus are yellow ochre, burnt and raw umber to mix your various browns easier.
You will need an assortment of synthetic brushes consisting of detailed #0 or #2, a medium round brush and a large flat brush. A water cup and paper towel to rinse and dry off your brushes.
