  • Sketchbook- for thumbnails and process work

Other Materials:

  • I recommend having a versatile material to paint on such as 1 pad Arches oil paper 9 by 12 or 12 by 18 (or a similar disposable material such as Canson Canvapaper)-for thumbnails and process work

  • We will be working this term on a minimum of 3 paintings. The first will be one sitting in black and white, the second a smaller 2 sitting setup in color, and the third a larger setup in color for 3 sittings. I tell you this so that you may bring whatever material you prefer to paint on. Feel free to email me with any questions at
