Rosemary Brushes are very much favoured by a number of botanical artists - and a LOT of other artists as well.
I think Rosemary & Co. is the brush brand which gets a mention most often when I ask artists which brushes they like. I think there's three reasons for this
In dealing with artists directly, I’m able to offer exactly what you want, in terms of quality, price and delivery. I’m proud to be a small family business, who can extend an ‘old fashioned’ approach to conducting my business. I believe this to be a major strength and although the 21st century offers valuable technology, I feel it is important to remember the courtesies in life, day to day, between each other. With this in mind, if you don’t see what you’re looking for or need any help/advice with your selection, just ask!
What people might be less aware of is that they also do a lot of sets of brushes based on the recommendations of specific artists.
These include people who paint botanical and nature subjects.
Below are the Rosemary Brush Sets which have been put together for two long-standing tutors of botanical art who have been using Rosemary Brushes for a number of years.
Incidentally the Anna Mason brushes do get sold on Amazon - but for money than buying them direct from Rosemary! ;)
Besides sets of brushes Rosemary & Co also provide various series of brushes which have proved to be a firm favourite with botanical artists who like good brushes for painting details.
For brushes, I only use one Rosemary brush which is a pure sable “spotter” Series 93 in a size 3 on the shorter handle. This gorgeous little brush has shorter bristles, than regular brushes and has a strong, resilient point. I use it in a way similar to that of a felt tip pen, rather like colouring in. These are made by Rosemary herself, and I would be lost without them!
NOTE: Deliveries are taking a little longer at the moment - but they are at work and they are producing brushes to order.
