What I Paint with.
There is allot of wonderful supplies in my studio but in the end I really don't use that many in most paintings.
Over the years, it has been refined down to some great staples. It is mostly Golden liquid paints, they are great colours and the right consistency for the detail I paint. For the week they are poured into small capped containers. Generally it is a fairly limited palette....6 colours plus about 4 extra.
Out of 5 favourite brushes, the majority of every painting is created with a number 6 round. It just feels great in my hand and has a point fine enough for detail yet holds enough paint for faster work also.
I like to have lots of natural bits and pieces around to enjoy and use for inspiration....pinecones and branches etc. A good solid easel and it is a happy day.
