Most of you already know what mine is: Rosemary & Co Series 772 1/2 inch sable blend dagger. I use it constantly and if I only had one brush this would be it.
To find out more about it check out this article.
It is not a travel brush, but my toothbrush container works perfectly.
But if I had to be more conventional and choose a round brush, my pick would be a sable mop – Rosemary & Co R8 – but I will admit that it is a fairly pricey brush. I love its fine point, the amount of water it holds and the expressive marks that I can get from this brush.
On the more affordable end is Rosemary’s R13 – designer sable blend. I love this brush too and recommend it as a good beginners brush. It has a stronger point, is a little more firm and a little easier to use than their R2 pure kolinsky brush. This is a brush that I discussed with Rosemary and Symi last year when I visited their studio and am so pleased that they added it to their range. It will be the brush that I will use during my upcoming SketchingNow Watercolour online course. BTW you will get more information about brushes if you sign up for the Watercolour waiting list.
But enough about my choices… what is your most used brush?
(I am especially interested in some good synthetic brushes)
