What you need to start Oil Painting


Oil painting can be a scary, unwelcoming material to understand, with the hundreds of different products out there. This is why I created this checklist for those of you who really want to give oil painting a try without spending a lot of money on things you won't use. Artists who regularly use oil paints may invest in different glazes & mediums, but if you've never used oil before, I would suggest with only the below items until you're sold on them. If you quickly decide you LOVE them (which I did) then you can check out my 'Top 10 artist tools' post which lists some of my favourite products to use with oil. I will also be creating a checklist for acrylic painting soon so watch out for that. (I've created the checklist so you can pin it (save it) for later.)
