Linda’s painting classes are held in the Michaels Store classroom in Gainesville.

The two optional palettes I like to have my students use are:
Cad red light
Cad yellow light or medium
The above palette is called a single primary palette.
Cad red light
Cad yellow light
Mars black or Paynes Gray
Alizarin Crimson or Rose
This palette is called a split or double primary palette because it has both warm and cool primary colors. You will have many more options to color mixing with this palette, but it is not necessary for good painting.
The single primary with five colors is adequate. I encourage you to also purchase a ¼ inch flat brush, a small round brush, and a signature liner brush, also called a rigger brush. I would like to use 8×10 inch painting panels for the classes as you can more easily find frames for that size. 9×12 is fine too. A spray mist bottle of water will be most helpful, as well as a table top easel and a paper palette with tear off sheets, or a sta-wet palette. If you don’t have a palette, bring large paper plates. You will also need paper towels. A bottle of airbrush or glazing medium is nice as a painting medium.You will find these products at stores like Michaels, Lanza Art Supplies in High Springs. Amazon, Dick Blick or Utrecht have them for order. I look forward to painting with you at our next class.
USE the same palette colors and brushes for oils and add a low odor solvent for rinsing your brushes. I recommend Gamisol.
