The Natures Details Brush Set
Rosemary & Co
The brushes in the ‘Natures Details’ set have been chosen by Sarah due to their consistent quality and durability.
''There is a good range to cover many techniques for painting detail. From the fine hair of a Harvest mouse to the speckles on an egg. The Series 8 size 4 is great for initial washes, to the size 2 for smaller areas. The Series 8 also forms a precise tapered point for 'drawing' and flow whilst having the 'belly' in just the right place to carry liquid elegantly. The length of the head being shorter than a 'designer' (Series 22) and longer than a regular (Series 33) The Series 323 spotter size 2 in the set is perfect for the early stages of detail and progressing through to dry brush technique, and to refine it even further with the Series 66 size 0. You will not be disappointed and this set is versatile for both botanical and natural history illustration.
I’ve been buying brushes from Rosemary and Co for several years now and have also recommended them to my students.
Rosemary & Co brushes are the main ones I use for both painting on paper and vellum.
As time went on I thought it would be great to have a brush set to promote to my students and to make buying brushes easier for them. Rosemary & Co offer consistent quality and durability, they are delivered promptly and are packaged really well to avoid damaging the brushes in transit. On top of that they are British made, which I am all for!''
