The following is general information about the paint colors, lighting kit and brushes Tina uses and prefers.
Tina is a “Gamblin Dedicated Workshop Instructor” and is thankful to Gamblin for shipping Gamsol samples to most of Tina's workshops so artists traveling by plane do not have to bring solvents. Gamblin also provides two of the colors in Tina's Supply List (Cad Orange Deep and Green Gold) as free samples for each student and a handful of other fun Gamblin products.
Here is Tina's general paint colors:

Tina offers her basic brush set through Rosemary & Co. Brushes of England, click here to view.
Rosemary & Co. Brushes were on the supply list for the very first oil painting workshop I ever took in 2012.
Not really understanding anything about painting or how the quality and design of a brush truly matters, I later bought tons of craft/art store brand brushes to try. What a waste of money.
There isn’t a single other brand of brush I’ve tried that perform like, holds up like or compares to a Rosemary & Co. Brush.
Most importantly, as I teach all over the U.S. and my first international workshop this year, I want my students to understand the importance of working with the best materials and how in the end it can actually save you money.
They need to understand painting is about solving problems. I’ve chosen these specific brushes because in my experience they help tremendously in solving one of the most common problems frustrated painters confront…edges.
The Series 331 Comber is specially designed to combat static edges that can kill the movement and music in an otherwise lovely painting.
When I see all those shiny black handles in my easel case I feel so happy knowing: When I’m painting, I’ve got 99 problems to solve, dealing with a poorly made brush is not one of them.
