Trekell Pro Team Artist, Nick Runge, has released his first brush set with Trekell! Designed with watercolor paint in mind, this set comes with 3 Protege brushes on short, black handles with Nick's signature:
#4 Round - Used for precision and detail work
#14 Round - Used for painting abstract shapes and moving water around
3/4" Wash Brush - Used for large, sharp shapes. Towards the end of the painting, laying in larger dark or colorful pigment in big sections
Each set includes a sticker and a header card featuring the artist's artwork.
Protege brushes are made from a synthetic filament, meant to mimic a natural hair Kolinsky brush. Although this set was put together for the watercolorist, it will work with oil, acrylic, enamel and gouache paint as well.
I love this brush set and it's well suited for painting in Nick's style - you can do dry brush technique but also put down washes (I do watercolor and egg tempera mostly). Not really a soft, squishy feel if you're looking for that - this is going to hold a lot of water but keep its point really well. That's what I love about it. I haven't tried it for egg tempera but I think it would probably work great for the line work in egg. Really versatile.
My only disappointment is that these brushes don’t make me instantly paint like Nick. Fantastic synthetic Kolinsky, ideal for detailing in watercolor
Awesome quality and performance , these become my new daily brushes
These felt great right out of the gate, SUPer Precise, great working trio of brushes.
