To ensure high-quality long-lasting artworks I only buy materials from suppliers specialising in art supplies. I use the following:

  • Winsor & Newton Artisan water mixable oil paints
  • Winsor & Newton oil mediums and thinner
  • Cobra artist quality water mixable oil paints
  • GOLDEN heavy body acrylics
  • GOLDEN high flow acrylics
  • GOLDEN gloss glazing liquid
  • GOLDEN gloss polymer varnish w/UVLS
  • GOLDEN soft gel gloss
  • Lefranc Bourgeois gesso
  • Talens 1001 gesso
  • Pentart crackle medium
  • Pinko quality canvases

NOTE: For an excellent painting surface and to increase the longevity of my paintings, I prime my canvases 4 times and sand twice in between gesso coats with fine sanding paper.

I only use water for clean-up and thinning gesso, not for thinning my paints.

Generally I don’t varnish my oil paintings, due to the slow drying time of this medium. Estimates about how long an oil painting should dry properly before varnishing range from 6 months to 1 year. Water mixable oil paint hardens faster than traditional oil paint. Because I use water mixable oils, and generally paint in thin layers, I would recommend waiting 6 months before varnishing my artworks. Varnishing is not compulsory, but it does help to protect an artwork and adds sheen. 

I use a wide range of brushes, silicon shapers, palette knives and other tools made by numerous companies.   

Special mention: da vinci VARIO-TIP brush (wider spacing of hairs at tip of brush; good for floral details).
