Round - 5500 Series

When people think of a fine art brush, they picture a round. The iconic, rounded shape is versatile, allowing artists to lay down washes, fills, and lines of all sizes. Rounds on the larger side can efficiently transform wide surface areas with fewer strokes. Those with finer points excel at delicate lines and intricate details.

Fan - 5530 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.

Red Sable series 5540 (Cat's tongue)

I started using the Red Sable Cat's tongue Trekell brushes off and on for a while. There are smaller passages in my work that call for smaller brushes and typically I use the #2 and #4 size, These brushes allow me to use the point for fine lines and I can increase the line width by merely increasing the pressure on the brush. This can of course be accomplished with other shapes of brushes but this style seems to afford me the most control. The Trekell brushes are great up and down the product line and I hope to be using these brushes for a long time to come. Just for reference I attached a recent 11x14 painting done almost exclusively with the 5540 series.

Red Sable Brushes

The Trekell red sable brushes are an excellent choice for a natural, soft hair brush. After using several different brands, I’ve gravitated towards these consistently. I love them!

These didn't work for me.

So I got these as a late x-mas gift from my Nana, she knew I had been obsessing over the brushes for awhile. Sadly they didn't work out for me... So the brushes didn't like to keep a point, and for some reason hair started falling out of them, I actually goofed up a painting trying to get the hair out, which was a little depressing. They seemed to lay color down fine, but I had a hard time doing details because of the hair situation, and I wasn't use to working with such long brushes, which is just a personal tick, so that's not reflected in the review. I'm giving three because I wasn't happy about the hair, but I thought about giving two, but felt that was unfair. I have sent the brushes back, wish they could have worked got me.

Excellent brushes

I have ordered the red sable brushes before and i can honestly say they are the best brushes. Not only in quality but design and the handling is just perfect. After holding them for too long some brushes make it uncomfortable to pain but these are just a dream! No discomfort whatsoever. Whether you're a pro artists or just starting out i seriously recommend using these as well as the kolinsky. Not enough things couldbe said to describe how wonderful they are . You wont be disappointed!

Wow

These brushes are my go to. I work primarily in Oil on Canvas and these brushes are simply put the best all around brushes I've used. I've put 100s of hours on my number 4; it does not disappoint and even when painting a bit carelessly and getting some paint in the ferrule it has been easily cleaned and maintained. Do yourself a favor and purchase one or two of these. They will not disappoint
