Something to use as a palette.Some options include:

Prepping your Canvas:
If possible, you should prep your canvas prior to class.If not, this is the first thing you should do as soon as you arrive to class.For students working in acrylic only, or starting with an acrylic base to paint over in oils:
Prep your canvas with a medium value color (mid way between black and white as shown in the image below.)
Cover the front so that no white is showing, and paint the edges as well.
White (Large!!! We use lots of white.)
Orange (plus a light orange and/or dark orange if possible, but can be mixed in class)
Any Red or quinacridone magenta (having both is great)
