Plus a review of Daler Rowney’s Cryla Acrylics brushes
Acrylics are a popular painting medium. The benefits of quick drying time, cost effective paints and water based safety issues has made acrylics increasingly first choice for beginners. Plus more professionals are using acrylics for contemporary paintings. In this article I am going to show you how to paint a light filled beach scene (see video below). Plus I am using new brushes from Daler Rowney and Art Savings Club.
Let’s jump in!
How do Daler Rowney’s Georgian oil painting brushes hold up? You will find out in this edition of my Painting Brushes 101 series. I have two extensive videos below for you to see these brushes in action. So let us dive in and get to know the Georgian chungking bristle brushes a little better.
The paintbrush is the unsung hero in every artist’s studio. Not as flash as bright colors and often taken for granted. But without the brush we artists would be sorry indeed. There is also plenty of confusion about what brushes to use? Is an expensive brush worth it? Synthetic or natural bristles? And much more.
In this series of articles I will try to shed more light on this topic. I will also be demonstrating brushes for oils, acrylics and watercolor from the Georgian range of brushes supplied by Art Savings Club. Keep an eye out for the videos on these topics. You can watch Part One of the videos below.
But let’s begin with an introduction to brushes.
