Large Cotton Fiber Sumi-e Style Paintbrush
This is a brush that I specifically developed for artists that are interested in working on very large canvas/painting surfaces. It has a wood ferrule, reinforced bamboo handle, and long 100% cotton strands. The 100% cotton fiber is very absorbent and can make dynamic and interesting marks. I designed this brush based on traditional Asian large brush designs similar to the one shown below.
This brush is not quite as big as the one pictured, however, it has many of the same design features, such as long bristle fibers, a big ferrule, and a longer handle.
Mark-making can include highly saturated wide marks, or more fine line work if less saturated, using a soft application to the painting surface.

My brushes are made to create a vast array of marks. When I make a brush I think about all aspects of the tool: how it looks, how it feels in the hand, and how it paints - to ensure that the end product is a true "fine art tool".
