Recommended Brushes - Filbert Brushes Only Brushes should have spring and resilience to them. If you push your finger against the brush hairs and release, they should immediately go back to where they were before touching them. Therefore, I always like to buy my brushes in person, so I can test their strength. My favorite brand is Da Vinci Black Sable Double Thick (http://www.dickblick.com/products/da-vinci-black-sable-brushes/) I also like Isabey Mongoose Brushes, Isabey Pure Kolinsky Sable Brushes, and Raphael brand brushes as well. I like to have a Princeton 7400R #1 (this is a "Round" not a Filbert, and I think it's synthetic, but there's always an exception.) In general, synthetic brushes don’t have enough resilience and spring to them. How to Mix your Medium 1 part Sun-Thickened Linseed Oil 1 part Venice Turpentine 2 parts Gamsol Pour these 3 liquids into a container which you will be able to reseal tightly, as you will shake the container to mix the substances together before each painting session. You will pour a bit out into a transparent plastic cup or other container when you start your session. Oil Painting - What to expect in the first class: Understanding Warms and Cools - Mostly grisaille painting (warm and cold blacks, probably some yellow ochre and a red). We’ll paint a cylinder – a simple shape – in the form of an everyday object – as well as the surrounding space and air, which we will also analyze in terms of value and color temperature, as well as plane changes. Definitions: 1) Grisaille: Painting in a single color of different values, usually greys. 2) Color Temperature: The optical warmth or coolness of a pigment; blue is cold, red and yellow are warm. Green is not as cold as blue, because it has yellow in it. Purple is colder than magenta. Both are a mix of red and blue, but purple has more blue than red, and magenta has more red than blue. 3) Value: The amount of white mixed into a pigment. This is also known as saturation.
