Oil Paints

I use a mix of oil paint brands but this is currently my main palette. I am a sucker for unique and odd handmade paints as well!

  • Jackson's Art - Bright Yellow Lake
  • Michael Harding - Yellow Ochre
  • Michael Harding - Raw Umber
  • Winsor & Newton - Quinacridone Magenta
  • Gamblin - Napthol Red
  • Michael Harding - Burnt Umber
  • Gamblin - Turquoise
  • Gamblin - Ultramarine
  • Williamsburg - Ivory Black
  • Michael Harding - Warm White
  • Gamblin - Titanium White

Slightly more unusual additions I'm currently using. 


I make my painting boards using MDF, gesso and lots of sanding. I like to paint on a smooth surface with a very subtle tooth.

  • Holbein Acrylic Gesso
  • Burnt Umber (sometimes raw umber), Ultramarine (sometimes turquoise) & Flemish Glazing Siccative
  • Faber Castell's Polychromos
  • Gamsol Varnish



    You can watch time-lapse videos of my process and my tiny desk-studio is featured on Instagram, FB and TikTok.
