Egberts – Who Knew??
As a painter, I’ve grown set in my ways. When you find something or a set of something’s that seem to work, you don’t change it up, right? Until you do. ‘Set in your ways’ holds you right where you are.
For the workshop, I made sure to have everything on the supply list, including Egbert brushes. I usually paint with flats- edgy, controllable. These egberts are long and thin and floppy. They took some getting used to. They are great for sketching in your values and initial marks, super for brush strokes, less controlled and therefore looser in results. I am just and finally growing into paying attention to brushstrokes- yet another dimension on the journey. I loved the push to try new techniques, new paint mixes, and-new brush types. I’d love to hear your experience.
