Painting Supplies List

For your convenience, I've compiled a list of the recommended painting supplies that I regularly use. I hope this helps save you time and money! Each of these products links to Blick, Michaels, or Amazon, whoever has the lowest price. (Please note that this page contains affiliate links. Click here to see my affiliate link disclosure.)


Brushes & Mediums

If you're curious about what oil paint colors to use, I have created a chart of what I consider to be the best pigments available. You can access that chart and download it as a PDF here.


There are over 100 paints listed on that chart. You won’t need all of them. To simplify things, I’ve also created a couple of example palettes below. The first one is for anyone looking for a basic set of colors to get started with. The second lists the colors that I use to paint wildlife. I encourage you to test out different colors and different brands to get a sense of what you like. 


Example Palette #1 (limited or beginner’s palette with just 8 colors)


Example Palette #2 (the 14 colors currently on my palette)
