Brushes


Some of my favorite brushes are my sumi-e Chinese bamboo brushes. Larger brushes for my larger canvases were on my supply list and I was quite fortunate while visiting Savannah Georgia to have found the most incredible Chinese brushes made of sheep, fox, wolf, and she wolf with handles of bamboo, and ceramic.
They are just magical!

I love seeing artists' studios and tools along with their work. They seem very soft.

I googled some brushes like these yesterday, the large one came up at $58 on some sites, there are many sets, google sumi-e or chinese brushes.

Do you use them with acrylics? Sheltered me thought you could only use with ink.
You learn something new every day!
