If you’re in a hurry to purchase everything else, you don’t need to overlook the acrylics or oils. The main colors are red, green, blue, yellow, an orange, and a purple. In addition, there will be a few shades each of the other primary colours, like browns such as burnt umber or burnt Sienna. It’s not uncommon for me to use a lot of burnt-umber. An extra tube of paint in white will be needed. You can choose between black and gray. Each brand has different color names. It is also cheaper. Paint quickly runs out!
