Bright - 400B Series

The shorter, more evenly-shaped hairs of bright brushes can easily control heavy and thick applications of paint. 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.

Long Filbert - 400MKF Series

Like its shorter counterpart, this variation on the filbert is quite handy. When you require a filbert's point, but need a brush with greater flexibility, the long filbert fills in admirably.

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.

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.

This brush takes a beating with dignity and grace

I took a break from oil painting for a few years (7) and just started to get back into the medium. A friend of mine recommended working with hog bristle filberts and of course I thought to check out Trekells given my positive experience with their other products. I ordered these and have been using them for a couple of months now. I absolutely love them! I tend to keep using the same brush throughout a painting, so its a great testament to the quality of these brushes. They still hold their shape and bristles beautifully, and I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a great brush for oil painting!

Great brushes!

I've been using these brushes for a while now and they have become my favorite! They hold oil paint well and bounce back into shape. Durable brushes that I will continue to buy from now on.
