I paint in defferent media, but mostly in oils. My favorite paint is Windsor & Newton. For really special colours I use ”Scheveningen”. I have a lot of brushes, but my favorites are the cow’s hair Talens, and the synthetic. I don’t like the hard bristles of porkhair.
I work on canvas, marouflé and panel.
Marouflé is easy to take with you, canvas is good for large paintings, it’s not so heavy, and panel is good for small paintings. As a surface it’s very smooth, and it doesn’t ”work” as much as canvas does. But it’s very heavy…
I like to start with a simple palette as I start a painting, when I am sure about my colours I make up the whole palette. I have a real, proper painter’s palette, but really I usually use a piece of prepared hardboard.
