This article is for people new to painting with oil or acrylic paints who need to know what to get when first starting out. When I started to learn to paint, I had the same questions, but I couldn't find a clear answer. What supplies do I need to learn to paint fine art?

Essential painting supplies for starting off right
  • Acrylic or Oil paints - Ok, it sounds strange, but you do not want to forget in your rush to get everything else, do you? You will need a couple shades of each main color, reds, greens, blues, yellows, an orange, a purple, and some browns like burnt umber and burnt sienna. I use plenty of burnt umber! You'll want an extra tube of white paint. Black and gray depend on preference. The color names vary by brand. Student quality paint is cheaper and great for while you learn. Paint gets used up quickly!
  • A palette knife for mixing paint
  • A palette for mixing paint before adding it to your canvas or board
  • Gesso for preparing canvas or panels for painting.
  • Paint brushes - Paint brushes come in different sizes and shapes. There are rounded, flat edged, and tongue shaped paint brushes. Get at least 3 of each in different sizes.
  • Medium gel - Use this for thinning oil paint for different consistencies
  • Solvent - you can use this to clean oil paint from your brushes
  • A jar or glass of water for cleaning acrylic brushes and keeping the paint from drying on them while working.
  • An easel - A stand up easel is best for painting while you stand for full body movement. Desktop easels double as carrying cases for paint.
  • rags for wiping oil paint off your brushes
