KEN HOSMER SUPPLY LIST

 

KEN HOSMER SUPPLY LIST (updated 8/16)

OIL PAINTING WORKSHOP

Bring whatever oil painting supplies you normally use. If you need guidance in selection, here are suggestions. If you are on a limited budget, don’t get the ‘optional’ colors. Also, Holbein now has smaller 20 ml tubes available. Note that I have eliminated brush cleaning solvents from the supply list and substituted healthier choices.

Round or rigger type brush that comes to a good point for signing your name (and sketching)

CANVASES: Two or Three Sizes 12”x16” or 16”x20”. I use either manufactured acrylic primed canvas panels (see web site), or

untempered masonite hardboard panels with two coats of acrylic gesso, or stretched canvases.

One fairly simple photo of buildings with trees, or boats or similar. Enlarge and crop the photo to size 5x7 or 6x8 and

bring a working copy on regular or photo paper. We will mark on this with a fine point Sharpie marker.

INK SKETCH: #2 Office Pencil and a small water container

Black Brush Pen--felt marker type, Tombow (N15 or N25). These are water-soluble markers. Black watercolor and

a small brush will also work for ink drawings.

Bristol Drawing Pad--11x14” or similar size—plate or smooth preferred (Strathmore smooth surface is good.)

6 sheets of white computer printing paper

Reference Photos—any subject you like. These are creatively interpreted into paintings.

NOTE: If your photos are on an electronic device, please print them. No photos of other art work.

OTHER: Easel
