Molly is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists Organization and The Delaplaine Arts Center. Molly has studied at the Schuler’s School of Fine Art, a classical art school, with award winning artist Hans Guerin. She works in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, colored pencil, and charcoal. Molly primary paints wildlife and birds.

SUPPLY LIST: Artist grade oil paints work best, Gamblin and M. Graham are good brands.

Oil Paints: Titanium White, Cadmium Yellow light, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red light, Alizarin Crimson (or Permanent Carmine), French Ultramarine Blue, Thalo Blue, Sap Green, Burnt Sienna (or Terra Rosa), Raw Umber, and Ivory Black.

Palette: Wood or plastic is fine. Painting Surface: Canvas Panels, Stretched Canvas, or Hardboard, I like Ambersand gessoboard.

Paper towels or rags: I love viva paper towels

Brushes: Bring any you have. A small round brush for details. Larger bristle filberts, or flats, in sizes 4, 6 (or 8), and 10 are a good start. A soft blending brush, sable or synyhetic, about size 6. Good brands - Robert Simmons, Winsor & Newton, Blick Masterstroke.

Medium: Liquin is good for thinning oil colors and speeds drying time, it also helps in glazing and fine detail.

Odorless Turpenoid: For painting and cleanup. Gamsol is another good product for cleanup. NO REGULAR TURPENTINE – the fumes are toxic.

Pencils and paper, or sketchpad: for drawing your composition.

Table easel: optional - it works well when sitting.
