Large, Wide Horsehair Paintbrush
This is a brush that I specifically developed for artists that are interested in working on very large canvas/painting surfaces. The brush was made using a very large piece of bamboo and semi-coarse mixed horsehair. It has a thick bristle which can hold a lot of medium. It is 18" wide and is perfect for making wide sweeping marks on the painting surface. I included an example of ink on paper completed with this brush in the attached pictures.
The brush has:
- The bristle is 18" in length
- The Handle is 25” in length
- The end of the brush handle is embellished with a sand dollar fossil
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".
