We will be working from one of my photographs of Narooma Beach. You will be provided with photographs and other aids to help get the drawing and values correct. We will cover drawing, perspective and colour theory, tonal recession, composition, art materials and many other things designed to help you become a better artist.

  • Brushes: sizes 6, 8, 10, bright flat synthetic or bristle, 1 small sable liner, 1” varnish brush, painting knife
  • Colours: ultramarine blue; lemon yellow; yellow ochre; cadmium red; viridian; titanium white (I use zinc/titanium white made by Senellier)
  • A gessoed board or canvas 30x40cm or 3:4 ratio
  • Some way of getting your wet painting home. A cardboard box with a bottom slightly bigger than your painting works well. Pizza box?
  • Dipper for solvent. (Small tin or jar)
  • Palette (should be about 40cm x 28cm)
  • Tissues for wiping brushes
  • Notebook, pen, phone or similar recording device.
  • Easel
  • Archival Oils “FAST EVAPORATING” Odourless Solvent for thinning paint. Make sure it says “Fast Evaporating” on the label OR Gamsol

 I would like to keep the room turps free. I have enough to share if you can’t find them.

A word on paint brands: Artists quality paints such as Winsor & Newton, Senellier, Langridge, Rembrandt and Art Spectrum will perform much better than student paints like Winton, Rowney Georgian and especially those Chinese brands such as Monte Marte. You get what you pay for.


  • Could participants please bring your own lunch; water bottle and other refreshments if required. We will provide morning tea.
