Blog, Blogging, Bloggers!

You might be thinking, ‘What is a blog?’, ‘Why do I need to blog?’, ‘Who reads a blog?’ and so on. I’ve asked myself the same question a million times over, but the truth is it’s all about reinforcing your brand, and giving people who are interested more information.

Brush Reviews And Advice – When Daggers Are Drawn

As with many of our brushes at Rosemary & Co, we rely on the world’s top artists to tell us what they need and work hard to make the specific brush for them. At the beginning of 2015, Australian artist, Liz Steel contacted us and asked if we could make a brush shorter than the sword liner (a dagger brush), but in the larger sizes, and suitable for travelling. Liz describes why she uses a dagger, “mainly to get more expressive strokes – thin strokes like a rigger, big wider strokes like a flat and lots of other expressive calligraphic marks.

Interview With Svetlana Orinko

When did you first start painting?

I was born and grew up in Ukraine and at the age of 7 I was placed in an institution for disabled children due to a misdiagnosis. To escape the harsh realities I found comfort in painting and drawing and after 5 years of living in an extremely sterile environment, one of the teachers noticed my abilities and encouraged my parents to enrol me in to Art School.

Let’s Get Up And Go – Reversible Pocket Brushes

A welcome addition to the watercolourists’ outdoor painting box. Useful on holiday and field trips yet also popular in the studio as an everyday brush! The lightweight slimline case enables the artist to ‘feel’ the paper through the brush stroke. The construction allows the head to be reversed ‘inside’ the case for safe storage.
