Except for Trekell.
I have been using their long filberts and flat hog
bristle for nearly 5 years now and I can honestly say that they are the best
brushes Iíve touched. Iíve experimented with countless companies and nearly
every other brush came up short in one department or another. I was turned onto
Trekellís brushes through the Rational Painting Forum and several other painting
forums while obsessively researching materials. When it comes to selecting the
best materials, price is not something I worry about. I will gladly shell out
for a quality brush. Thankfully enough, with Trekell I donít have
Brush handling is one of the most important
aspects of painting and my appreciation for quality brushwork grows with every
painting I do. I generally paint very small but I always start with clean hog
bristle and gradually work my way down to a Kolinsky round for detail work. In a
pinch I can even draw with the #2 filberts. The range of strokes I can produce
with these brushes encompasses nearly everything I would need to do. In short,
Trekell gives me everything I need; from the drawing to the signature.
If you are looking for a better brush, you can
try everything under the sun, but I guarantee you will not find a better brush
and certainly not at a better price than one from Trekell.
