Edward Redfield (1869-1965) was born in Bridgeville, Delaware. After studying painting in Paris, he returned to the States and eventually settled in Center Bridge, Pennsylvania. There he began to produce very large dynamic winter scenes, all painted outdoors and in “one go,” no matter what the size.
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.

TRAVELLING ARTIST – Take yourself out of your comfort zone!
No two subjects are ever the same so why paint them so? For many years I painted the same familiar subjects, it was not until I travelled so widely that I truly discovered a clearer understanding of and the finer attributes of painting, in particular the importance of painting direct from life.
