Painting Buttermere

Watch and download this painting lesson with Tony Parsons.



Below you'll find a list of the basic colours I use – if you can, buy small tubes of them from your local art shop.


If that's not possible,  I've put together two kits for you here.


Use the code AOH10 for a 10% discount. Be warned: they only sell large tubes.


Basic colours I use

  • Titanium white
  • Cadmium yellow
  • Cadmium red
  • Alizarin crimson
  • Burnt sienna
  • French ultramarine
  • Cobalt blue


These can be either Winton or Georgia student-quality oil paints.


If you are feeling really posh and lavish I also use these Michael Harding colours:

  • Deep yellow lake
  • Kings blue deep
  • Pthalo turquoise
