Do you remember when we had relatives that dutifully presented us with our materials either at Christmas or on our birthdays?
Familiar names even now… Daler, Rowney, Windsor & Newton and Reeves.
Each gift a treasured possession. And we thought at the time hugely expensive.
Most of these brands have now been snapped up by a holding company in France carrying the name ‘Windsor and Newton’
Ordering your paint brushes now? for example, the names are a much more exotic…
And my personal favourite....
It must have six weeks ago when a tutor had us make our own brushes.
My Brush Set
Sarah Lees had us scouring the campus looking for anything which we could possibly press into service to create a 'brush' and make a mark. And the results were beautiful.
I’ve kept mine and I use them for their unique lines and shapes.
