Basic oil painting equipment
I want to learn how to oil paint and with the holidays coming up it would be a great time to ask for some oil painting equipment.
Now i was wondering what do i need ? i know that i need an easel, brushes and paint of course but i'm pretty sure i need more than that. Since i've never painted before maybe you guys can me some pointers on what type of brushes, paint, easel, etc. is good for oil painting. Maybe you know about a good (oil) painting book too ?
I was all so wondering what the basic colors/paint is that i need before i can do a oil painting. (like cadmium white)
(Price is not an issue, i want some quality stuff that will last long.)
Anyways, i'm off to study for my exams ( french , jippie )
Thanks for the help !

Primary hues of red, yellow and blue plus Titanium White (there is no such thing as Cadmium White). Your darkest dark is produced by red and blue plus a tiny bit of yellow.
A couple of flat hog bristle brushes (bigger than you think).
White spirit for thinning and cleaning up.
A tear-off paper palette for mixing the paint.
A bit of board primed white with houshold white emulsion to paint your picture on.
and you're set.....
Oh, and your Mum's best white towel for cleaning brushes.
