Studying at the Florence Academy of Art, there are many painting techniques to be mastered through intense practice and through following the methodology of the school. But there are also many things to be learned concerning one’s materials. For example, a great variety of edge qualities can be achieved in a painting simply by varying the kinds of brushes used—i.e. sable versus hog-hair.
This is a brush with unique properties which can be used as a tool for painting winter and summer trees.
A new addition to our Ivory range designed by David Shevlino from the USA.
In Shevlino’s current work, the canvas has increasingly become a place to experiment with different techniques of paint application. He is particularly interested in exploring the line between the traditional representation of the figure and the abstraction of it, and his paintings reflect his simultaneous use of both approaches. His paintings are characterized by broad brush strokes, a sensuous application of paint and an obvious feel for tonal harmonies.
Alexey Steele is an American painter of the Russian Representational School and a Soviet Art scholar.
Rosemary spent two years developing the 24 inch handles. She worked closely with Russian Master, Alexey Steele, who helped test the weights of the handles, lengths and balance to ensure they were perfect.
The longer length is ideal for those wanting to stand back from the canvas to paint. Typically used for the initial drawing and outline, the longer handle allows for perspection away from the canvas.
These brushes are ideal for oil and acrylic artists. Visit our website for more information.
