David Smeadon takes a painting trip down memory lane…

I first started painting way back when I was in primary school. I was interested in the birds I saw in the parks and garden and began drawing and painting them. I remember my teacher said I captured the shapes perfectly.

Experience the pleasure of these beautiful hand crafted red sable brushes. Fashioned on a triangular maroon handle with ‘easy grip’ in mind. Ideal for those who struggle to grip a brush and perhaps suffer from arthritis and with the added bonus they won’t roll off the table!


Introducing our Evergreen Synthetics

 EVERGREEN

Recently launched, a useful edition to our extensive range of brushes. The green dye was originally an idea I had to compliment the Christmas season – green reminded me of holly and ivy and Christmas trees. We sent them out to various artists as gifts ‘tongue in cheek’ and they loved them.

The Extended Point – Posara Brush

Having listened to renowned watercolourist, Sandra Strohschein, we have created a beautiful extended point brush. Acting as a rigger, but with a reservoir ‘belly’, the Posara Brush will soon become a favourite.

It was such a joy this year to introduce a new brush into my set. Developed specifically by Rosemary at my request, I now have a new rigger that by design holds a great deal of water and pigment at the base, which allows me to carry a line forever. I expected a great rigger from this, but did not expect that this size 8 rigger had the capability of painting entire paintings all on its own.

Here is an example of what I’m talking about:

Pocket Brushes For Urban Sketching

As an avid urban sketcher, I carry my sketching kit and sketchbook with me everywhere, so it’s important that I have a very efficient, lightweight but flexible selection of tools and materials. Having a pocket/reversible brush (or two) makes a lot of sense as they are compact and well protected.
