We get asked all of the time for the ‘magic’ brush. Sadly, there is no such thing, though there are certainly plenty of options available. And although it’s difficult to recommend a brush to someone without knowing specifically what they are painting, here are some helpful guidelines I want to share.
The Eclipse Extra Long Comber is a synthetic fibre that against all odds performs like the mongoose of yesteryear – a firm springy base and a soft wispy tip that offers the flexibility to execute any style of painting.
I’ve designed this new range to be an inexpensive blending brush. The Smooshing Brush is made from a blend of different grades of badger hair.
I’ve packed the hairs into the ferrule really tightly to create a dense brush, which will be firm to the touch, but still flexible. The beauty of the domed shape allows for a multitude of brush strokes.
Jeremy Lipking is one of the worlds most prolific realist painters of the 21st Century.
Jeremy was one of the first artists Rosemary met during her first business trip to America over seven years ago. Since that day Jeremy has been team Rosemary; freely shouting about our brushes to all his students and helping us design new ranges.
Award winning artist, Kate Steenhauer discussses the importance of lines.
Drawing is at the root of Steenhauer’s work. Her style is quick with successive markmaking and intense and loosely-drawn lines amalgamating on the surface of each body of her work. As the fine detail aims to create character, gesture and movement, the overall design aims to evoke a harmonious atmosphere.
