This kit has been developed with base colours for Ben Howe’s Painting classes but is also a great starter kit with Series 1 colours appropriate for beginners.
When working at home in oil paints it is important to ensure you have adequate ventilation and that you cover all surfaces as paints may stain. Oil paints require the use of solvents to both extend the paint and clean paint residue from brushes and palettes. We highly recommend the use of artist quality low odour solvents in opposition to industrial turpentine.
Students are welcome to use existing materials or purchase other brands but please ensure you have the listed base colours and that your paints are an “artist’s quality” (with a series number) rather than a synthetic student quality paint as these may not mix adequately.
Easel’s are not included in the price of this kit but are available at discounted rates through our store.
