Linseed oil. Odorless turpenoid or mineral spirit for
Glass on brown paper, or word board palette
Do not use white paper palette.
Primed and stretched canvas preferred, but you may use
panels from RayMar, or loose canvas. Choose the size you feel
comfortable with, but do not go beyond 12" x 16". Do
not use paper backed canvas panels. They are too absorptive.
Plastic bags for trash
Bring you favorite still-life objects if you like.
To get better illumination for your canvas and palette, you
may bring a light on a stand. If you do not have a light, you
may bring a camera tripod, and I will provide you clip light.
