As a high realist oil painter, the majority of my detail work is done using script and liner brushes to achieve the life-like refinement of feather detail on a bird, weathered wood grain or cracked and peeling paint. After a few years of using brushes from a local art store in Ontario, I decided to experiment with a variety of brush brands and hair by ordering online. Among my shipment of new supplies were Princeton Select. I had heard of Princeton’s reputation as a high quality brush manufacturer. When I tried the new Select line I was thrilled with their durability and consistent point. I particularly love their softness, which allows me to create seamless gradation, while hiding all brush marks. My favorites include liners, rounds and mops.
