WHAT CANVAS & PALETTES DO I NEED?

 

You will need a Pad of Canvas Sheet. A3 if you can get it but if not A4. Any brand but the ones below are affordable and you can buy online.


You will need a palette of some sort. this could be plastic plates, a pad of disposable tear-off palettes or timber palettes. I have found all of these items available online from eBay, Office Works or Amazon just to name a few. All items around $10 or less.

To do larger paintings I suggest you work on Stretched Canvases or Canvas Board. Once again, you can get a very affordable range of canvases online. The Mont Marte range of materials are very well priced.

 

You will need some jars with lids, some rags, some charcoal and latex gloves if you are using oil paint and want to protect your hands.
