Portrait Painting

Julia Clift


3 primed canvases, or canvas boards, or sheets of canvas paper, or panels.


Make sure you are selecting brushes that are labeled “for oils and acrylics” (stay away from watercolor brushes!)  There are lots of brands of brushes…you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg, but I would stay away from the cheapest line available. Whatever brand you choose, pick a small, medium, and large flat and round (6 total).

Palette Knife

Metal palette knife with a diamond or tear-drop shaped tip. Get the kind that has a bend in it—not the kind that looks like a butter knife.


Hard wooden or plastic palette with a completely flat surface (no cups!) You can use a sheet of plexiglass or glass (from an old picture frame, for example), just make sure you clean it and wrap any sharp edges in tape before bringing it to class.


For beginners, I recommend Winton brand. Gamblin, Old Holland, and Winsor Newton are good quality brands but a little pricier.

  • titanium white
  • burnt umber
  • raw umber
  • burnt sienna
  • raw sienna
  • ultramarine blue
  • cadmium red-medium or light, or both
  • cadmium yellow
  • yellow ochre or mars yellow
  • naples yellow
  • sap green
  • phthalo green

Chemicals, etc.

  • 3 glass jars with lids
  • Refined linseed oil
  • Turpenoid or other odorless turpentine substitute
  • Damar varnish

Cloth Rags

Please bring cloth rags as opposed to paper towels. They are much less wasteful.
