The Importance Of Perspection – The 24 Inch Handle

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.

To Frame Or Not To Frame

I’ve always viewed a completed painting, framed and all, as a complete “art object.” I never feel a work is truly finished and/or ready to be viewed until the right frame has been added.

In Praise Of The Straight Edge

Straight edge brushes were traditionally used by the sign writer and calligrapher. Now however, for the painter to leave this valuable tool out of his equipment is a great mistake.

Every painting is a mixture of the defined or the undefined, or as I tend to refer to them ‘mush’ and ‘anchor’. The straight edged brush is the perfect tool for painting in the anchors with freshness and simplicity, yet with accuracy.
