Can the right teacher really make a difference?
I once attended a school where the teacher was so good, that I was taught 20 years worth of how to draw and paint better in 1 year. In this special event, new workshop, I’ll teach you 30 years of figure painting secrets in 3 days. Every aspect of figure painting will be explored and demos will take place every day. See if the right teacher really can make a difference!

Any good oil bristle brushes. I use mostly Flat’s or Filberts, sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
I use White (big tube), lemon yellow, cad yellow, yellow ochre, orange, your basic red, alizarin crimson, burnt
umber, a basic green, ult. blue, and black.
Either a hand-held wooden one, or glass palette. Mine is double-strength glass, around 15 x 20″, or whatever fits
in your carrying case. You’ll need a metal razor-blade scrapper for cleaning glass palette, and a roll of paper
towels to keep brushes clean, and a Palette knife (the longer, beveled kind) for mixing colors on palette.
I use odorless Turpenoid for cleaning my brushes, and walnut oil as a medium to keep paint smooth and brushable
(the Liquin brand is another fine medium). I have two separate glass containers containing turpenoid; one for
cleaning the brushes and another, cleaner mixture, for painting with. “Silicoils” are great as brush-cleaning
jars. A baby food jar is good for storing the walnut oil or Liquin in.
Smallest:16 x 20″ or largest: up to 20 x 30″. Primed Masonite panels are fine, too.
- Sketchbook and Newsprint pads:
A sketchbook for drawing lessons and taking notes. Also, bring a smooth surface,12 x 18 Newsprint pad. You’ll
need 3-B charcoal pencils, kneaded eraser, and razor blades (for sharpening pencils).
