2014: The Year of Making Art

December 30, 2013


If you’ve wanted a jump-start to do more painting in 2014, join me for a free painting demonstration on New Year’s Day. The demo will be broadcast live beginning at 1pm MST at

Here’s a list of materials I’ll be using:

-A panel to paint on, lightly sanded and coated with gesso
-A mirror (we’ll be working on a self-portrait)
-Brush cleaner
-Paper towel or rag
-Palette loaded with paint. I usually use Rembrandt brand, but you can use whatever you’ve got. My colors are, from left to right: raw umber, transparent brown oxide, burnt sienna, raw sienna, Naples yellow, titanium white, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium orange, cadmium red deep, permanent madder deep (or alizarin crimson), ultramarine blue deep, and black. If you don’t want to get all of these colors, you can get by with burnt sienna, raw sienna, white, and black.
-A variety of brushes: a cheap chip brush, a few larger bristle brushes, a few fine sable brushes, and a fan brush.

See you in 2014!
