Bright - 400B Series

A bright brush's shape, a flat-end with a rounder-midsection, allows it to create either strong or sharp lines depending on the technique. Commonly used in landscape painting or when painting atop paint.

Fan - 405 Series

The spread out bristles give the fan brush its titular shape. It’s primarily known for creating multiple lines or dots that are uniform. It’s also commonly used to blend and shade backgrounds. That said, a fan brush can replicate a wide array of textures and special effects just by varying the technique.

These hog bristle flats work well

The bristle is long, flexible, but stiff enough for a good 'spring'. The brush stays flat and compact (doesn't spread like a flower) and lasts a good long time. I'll order more when I need them. Good brushes.

Among the very best

I've noticed that while many companies can turn out a good bristle filbert or flat, only a few select brush makers can make a bristle round that comes to a good point, holds its shape, and has good spring. I just have started using a Trekell Hog Bristle size 4 round (my workhorse brush for sketching and blocking-in) and I love everything about it. My new favorite! I first discovered Trekell when I won an art show prize that included free materials from Trekell. I sampled a variety of their hog bristle brushes at that time - and have been using filberts and long filberts from the series. They are also among the best brushes I've used. But as I said at the top, it's the quality of a company's bristle round that I use as my yardstick. Bravo, Trekell!

Love these brushes!

These brushes have just the right number of bristles, great spring, and handle beautifully. I ordered rounds, filberts, and flats and they are all very impressive. My new favorite brush brand. I am glad to order from a small company too. Also thanks to Savvy Painter or I would not know about you.
