CAROLYN ANDERSON WORKSHOP
SUGGESTED MATERIALS LIST
I prefer Holbein paints and use
the following colors:
Cadmium red light
Yellow ochre and/or gold ochre (I usually use gold ochre)
Permanent yellow deep
Permanent yellow light
Permanent orange (the permanent colors are substitutes for cadmiums)
Ultramarine blue deep
Crimson lake or alizarin crimson
(preferably a white with a more fluid consistency) e.g. Gamblin, Rembrandt
or Holbein Titanium
NOTE: Terra verte, mineral
violet and gold ochre are specific colors to Holbein. Gamblin’s manganese
violet is very similar to the mineral violet. Other terra vertes are not the
same color as the Holbein brand.
A good source for Holbein
materials is www.black-horse.com or 800-790-2552.
I recommend bristle brushes, such
as hog bristle, in flats, sizes 4 to 10 or 12.
I also use a smaller size
synthetic round, e.g. 2 or 4.
I usually use linen panels,
Claussens 15 or 66 canvas. Try to avoid panels that are too smooth and have
no tooth. Plan on two panels per day.
I would like to see smaller
sized panels or canvases used in the workshop. A finished 9x12 or 12x16 is
much better than a partially covered 20x26. With this in mind, please limit
your panel and canvas size.
TURPENOID OR GAMSOL ONLY!
Please do not bring “oderless mineral spirits” or “Turpernoid Natural”.
Please, no mediums during the workshop.
Check with the workshop
organization regarding easels.
