Blue (phthalo, cobalt, or cyan, primary)
Check out this paint set on Amazon.
Add other colors/shades to have more options and versatility in color mixing. I use medium body student grade acrylics. I DO NOT recommend craft paint.
Large Flat Square 1"
Medium Bright Square 1/2"
Medium Filbert #8
Medium Round #6
Small Round #1-3
This brush set I recommend.
Optional extra brushes, pallet knife, sponges, circle shaped objects for moons and suns.
Golden Open Set
I recommend the golden open set for painters who wish the paint to not dry so fast and for a different blending effect. Tip this may work better if you struggle with blending. I recommend the Golden Set for those who wish for a nice finish and buildable texture.
Short Handle Snap Set
These brushes are my favorite for painting on paper or on smaller canvases that I paint laying flat and not on an easel.
