What Art Supplies Should The Oil Painter Bring?

‘At Water’s Edge, East Beach’ Oil 20×24 by Albert Handell

What Art Supplies Should the Oil Painter Bring?

If you are painting in oils, bring the colors that you are accustomed to painting with, plus at least 12 or more canvases or canvas panels to paint on. 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 are 9 x 12”, 11 x 14”, 12 x 16”, 14 x 18”, or 16 x 20”. 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, 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.

Albert has also added a few pre-mixed grays to his palette:
Holbein #369 Neutral Grey (that’s his lightest grey)
Holbein #374 Violet Grey (a beautiful light bluish grey)
Holbein #379 Monochrome tint cool (an important middle value grey)
• Or, #379 can be substituted, if you wish, by Gamlin’s Portland Grey Deep.

If you are painting with oils, these few pre-mixed grays can be helpful.

Brushes: Select your favorite brushes – the ones that you use most often. Purchase 3 of each of these favorite brushes. Having these 3 brushes of the same size will help to keep your colors clean. One brush will be for the darks; a second will be for the middle tone colors and the third will be for the lighter colors. This way you can paint more with your favorite brush or brushes without getting muddy colors.

For Plein Air painting:

Some general outdoor supplies, no matter in what medium you are painting, are your portable easel, a hat with a wide brim, sunscreen, etc. Unfortunately umbrellas, which could be useful, are difficult to take onto airplanes.

Can I Ship My Art Supplies to the Workshop?

It is possible that the place where you are staying may be able to accept shipment of your supplies. Please call them directly to make these arrangements. Please ship by UPS or Fed Ex. Or if by the post office ships only by 3 DAY priority mail with signature required- this way you will get a tracking number.

We look forward to a wonderful and productive week together.

Historic St. Mary’s City is the first settlement in Maryland, the fourth English colony in the New World and served as the Colonial Capital of Maryland.

Painting venues will include historic colonial sites, private waterfront estates and the campus of historic Trinity Episcopal Church and St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

Subject Matter

Albert Handell Maryland2Albert Handell Maryland3

As you can see from the above photos there are beautiful grounds right outside the church.

Here is a picture of the fountain in the Garden of Remembrance (across from the parish hall) and the Maryland Dove (a replica of one of the vessels that brought the settlers to Maryland in 1634). The Dove is docked down the hill next to the Church.

Join Albert Handell in this exciting 5 day indoor/outdoor painting workshop. In the morning demonstration you will see and learn what to select and emphasize and what to play down or even take out of your paintings in order to make a strong design statement, and work sensibly towards finish. It will be an opportunity to see how a Master Artist works in a studio setting and on location.

We would appreciate the balance of the tuition of $595.00 to be paid in full by September 15, 2018, one month before the first day of the workshop. This will help us avoid overbooking the program. Thank you in advance!

THE DAILY SCHEDULE:

The workshop hours are from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM daily.

The studio demonstrations will clearly show how he perfects his outdoor studies and bring life to his paintings from photographs. The workshop is geared to all levels of artists of the landscape and the still life, who have some experience working in pastels, oils, or water media

There are four daily morning demonstrations, from 9:30 AM to noon; all demos are from start to finish. The first 3 demos are in the studio – The 4th is on location:

  • Monday demo is with pastels from beginning to finish
  • Tuesday demo is mixed media pastel (watercolor under painting, finishing with pastel).
  • Wednesday demo is in oils. This oil demo is from beginning to finish, it relates strongly to Albert’s mixed media water color – pastel demo of the previous day. It also takes in glazing and scumbling, two valuable techniques, rarely demonstrated in workshops, and closely relates to the technique of “feathering” in pastels
  • On Thursday, weather permitting, Albert will paint on location with you in the morning, and give individual help at the easel in the afternoon.

The afternoons, from 1-4:30 PM we will be painting at designated locations. If the weather is bad, we will be painting in the studio. Albert will give individual help to each artist at the easel. Every afternoon you are welcome to paint in the medium of your choice.

  • Friday morning there is a farewell in-depth critique for every artist, please bring to the studio everything you have painted during the week, plus 6-8 works you have painted previous to the workshop.

In the afternoon we will stay in the studio and finish the works we have started at locations, with help at the easel.Albert Handell Maryland4
