Hello all! I don't know if this is the best place, neither if there's already a topic about it... but well, let's go.
I would like to learn a bit about oil painting. I know NOTHING of the technical part.... like, how to start, what to use, etc.
What I want to know is, as a starter and a student, what should I buy? What brushes? Should I buy canvas with fabric or an special paper (I've read something about gesso... don't know if it is for oil or otherstuff)... How many colors? What colors? (I know I should buy few colors). Or I just go to the store and OMG WHAT A GORGEOUS RED, I CHOSE YOU!?
As you can see, I really know nothing... Hope this isn't some dumb question, and thanks!
