Photos of certain supplies that are best described with a picture.
Real Canvas Pad – Fredrix brand “Medium Texture Real Artist’s Canvas Canvas Pad” – pre-primed, unstretched canvas. In either 12″ x 16″ or 9″ x 12″.
Palette knife with a 2″ blade like this is far more versatile, and better for mixing, than the long flat-bladed knife.
L-shaped croppers – Make your own from cardboard, approx. 9″ x 12″. These can also be made from a 9 x 12 matte, cut in half diagonally.
Markers – 1 (one) black and 1 (one) 50% cool gray. We do lots of thumbnails. A soft pencil (above) is perfectly fine for this. I like markers and will also be demonstrating with them. If you would like to try them, I recommend Prismacolor. They make a double-nib marker with a broad point on one end and a “fine” point on the other.
