ACCOMMODATIONS

Santa Fe has a wide range of wonderful accommodations, which vary in price.

My first recommendation for a reasonably priced yet charming inn is the El Rey Inn. This hotel, which was built in 1973, has that special Old Santa Fe charm. Visit their website (www.elreyinnsantafe.com) or call 505-982-1931 to make reservations.
The El Rey Inn offers a 10% discount for AAA or AARP, and an “El Rey Passport” which offers a free night for every five nights booked.

Another lovely yet reasonably priced option is The Sage Inn. This hotel is located next door to a large Whole Foods store and the Railyard Arts District. Reservations can be made via their website (www.santafesageinn.com) or by phone at 505-982-5952.

For a complete listing of accommodations, please visit the Chamber of Commerce website: www.santafechamber.com.

SUGGESTED ART SUPPLIES

Please bring your portable easel to paint with and in the case of inclement weather, please bring some of your favorite photographs to work from. (Albert will have a wide choice available to also choose from)

If you are flying to the workshop and need Gamsol or Turpenoid, please contact the studio and we will arrange for its purchase and we will have it for you when you arrive.
The Handell Office will also help you with the return of your wet paintings.

What Art Supplies Should the Oil Painter Bring?

If you are painting in oils, bring the colors, and the surface that you are accustomed to painting with. Albert suggests the Source Tek Panels: telephone them at 800.587.5462 or visit their website: www.canvaspanels.com. They have Claussen Linen #66 glued to light weight Birch plywood – in different sizes. They are strong and lightweight. The recommended sizes for indoor oils are 14 x 18”, 16 x 20”, 18 x 24”. Choose the sizes that you are most comfortable painting on.

A Suggested List of Oil Colors:

Mr. Handell paints large oils during the winter months in the studio. He uses Turpenoid as his paint medium, especially at the beginning, since these works are larger and call for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th painting sessions. He will then use Winsor Newton Liquin (provided in the studio), very sparingly as his paint medium. He applies paint combining both brush and palette knife applications of color.
His Oil Palette is listed below:
(your oil palette may be different, and that is fine)
Titanium White W/N (Winsor Newton)
Naples Yellow W/N
Cadmium Lemon W/N
Cadmium Yellow W/N
Cadmium Orange W/N
Cadmium Red Light W/N
Permanent Alizarin Crimson W/N
Yellow Ocher Light W/N
Burnt Sienna W/N
Viridian (Green) W/N
Cobalt Blue W/N
Ultra-Marine Blue W/N
Ivory Black W/N

Those colors are optional – bring what you normally paint with, all brands are good.

Brushes: Select your favorite brushes and palette knives – the ones that you use most often, bring them with you
