I love my Rosemary & Co brushes -

“Handmade in England and used by Artists worldwide”



These are beautiful brushes - they have great spring and each one is balanced perfectly for a wonderful painting experience!



Essentials:


Ivory Long Flats, sizes 5 and 8 - long handle

   (for blocking in)

Eclipse Short Flats, sizes 4 and 6 - long handle

   (love the marks made by these!)

Pointed Sable Mix, size 4

    (for fine finishing details)



I also recommend the Evergreen line, and the Golden Synthetic flats are great if you would like something with a softer touch.
