Materials: canvas or wood panel (no smaller than 12×16 and not larger than 24×36), brushes of various sizes, paint, odorless turpentine and small container for your turps, paper towel or rags, a flat palette (a sheet of glass, Perspex or wood is ideal, but a tear-of paper palette works as well).
Bring at least the following colours: titanium white, cadmium lemon, cadmium deep, yellow ochre, quinacridone red or rose madder, blue ultramarine, manganese or cerulean blue, raw umber. A table or standing easel – (Glenhyrst has a few table easels available).

Session two:
Bring your own printed photo (one that you took) and let’s explore how that can be made into a painting. The same techniques and materials used in session one will apply to this class.
