Supply List

Felicia Forte Paints Alla Prima Still Life and Portrait

Oil Paints: I prefer you to bring your regular palette of colors so that you are comfortable with them. I find students do better work with their own colors. If you see something different that you like in my palette, you can always add it later once you understand the benefit of it. Here is my list just for your reference, I use mostly Utrecht paints.

  • Titanium White
  • Yellow Ochre
  • Cadmium Red
  • Alizarin Crimson
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Ivory Black
  • Cadmium Yellow

(You do not have to buy specific brands, just buy good quality paint or you will have to use double the amount and it it won't be a bargain after all)

Brushes: I have worked with Rosemary and Co. Artist's Brushes to create a set of brushes for my students. Contact Rosemary and Co. to order this pack:

Palette suggestions: A sturdy rectangular glass palette which fits into a paintsaver box with the blue lid, or New Wave Palettes:

Palette Knife

Turp (odorless mineral spirits)I like Gamsol, to thin paint and clean brushes and palette.

2 Containers for turp: one large for cleaning brushes, and one small for clean turp that you will use to thin your paint as you go.


To Paint on: a pad of Arches Oil Paper -12"x16"
