Combs, Michele – Comprehensive Color

  • Canvas Boards – Arches oil paper or inexpensive cotton duck boards – 7 surfaces,11×14 each.
    *If you want pre-made charts, go to and order them for $100.00.
  • Ruler and Pencils Tape – 1⁄4″ artist tape
  • Palette knife – bring 1 or 2 triangular shaped knives or a thin one – to paint squares with.
  • Brushes – Bring a few stiff brushes in different sizes – ones good for painting squares. (I prefer using a knife but a brush can come in handy as well.)
  • Paper Towels
  • Palette – to mix paint on
    For acrylics I recommend a palette with a sponge on the bottom, it helps keep the paint moist. It makes the process go faster.
  • Paint We want to make charts for paints commonly used. These are good basics.
    • Titanium White
    • Cadmium Lemon
    • Cadmium Yellow pale or light
    • Cadmium Yellow deep
    • Yellow Ochre
    • Cadmium Red pale or light
    • Terra Rosa
    • Permanent Alizarin Crimson
    • Transparent Oxide Red (for oil buy Rembrandt in this color)
    • Viridian
    • Cobalt Blue Light or Cobalt Blue
    • Ultramarine Blue
  • Oil – Turpenoid or Gamsol – (odorless turpentine) and a container to put it in. Metal can with clasps seem to work the best.
  • Acrylics – container for water.
