Whitney’s Recommended Paint Supplies

My Recommended Painting Supplies

Brushes:

  1. I love these from NicPro and use them for acrylic and more detailed watercolor: https://amzn.to/3pabItC
  2. I also enjoy this set by BOSOBO! https://amzn.to/3o0ckT0

Acrylic Paints:

  1. This set from Artezza has lots of colors and is fun! https://amzn.to/3HV777b
  2. And this is an Artezza set that has fewer colors and would work great: https://amzn.to/3D29L7h
  3. I also often use the Studio Acrylics from Dick Blick in titanium white, mars black, magenta, primary red, cobalt blue, cerulean blue, cadmium yellow light and I also like payne’s grey.

Canvas:

  1. I really love, and try to only paint on, “gallery wrapped” canvas. The edges are wide / thick and look great hanging on the wall without a frame. This set is great: https://amzn.to/3D29L7h
  2. Especially starting, learning… allow yourself thee freedom to paint on anything! Anything you already have, that fits your budget, etc. There are no “have-to’s” when it comes to painting (anything, really!)!!
  3. I also enjoy painting on unstretched canvas that normally comes in rolls. I do like the heavyweight canvas from DicckBlick: https://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-premier-heavyweight-cotton-canvas-rolls/
  4. GenieCanvas.com sells canvas that comes in a tube and easily rolls out into a nice, gallery wrapped canvas. This is great if you might need to ship your canvas due to moving or selling! They are a bit more expensive but SO worth it if you want to paint big and then be able to ship easily.

Watercolors:

  1. THIS is by far my favorite set and what I always use for pan watercolors. They are Pelikan Opaque watercolors: https://amzn.to/3D6gPzH
  2. Brusho Crystal Colours is what we use in Art Gypsy Greece . The Watercolor Experience: https://amzn.to/3p6Y0ri
  3. My favorite watercolor AND painting journal is this one by Moleskine. It is nice and BIG and takes all media: https://amzn.to/3nZfs1r

 

Miscellaneous:

  1. I do not buy paper towels anymore, so I use old t-shirts, rags, etc. I clean paint off my brushes on my paint pants (most of them all) or an apron. Also, you can have your next canvas ready to go and use it to paint off extra paint and skip the water completely.
  2. I use meat trays or tofu containers for palettes. I try to use recycled objects as much as possible.
