This is a set of two Kolinsky Sable brushes made for Jean Haines by the fine brushmakers Rosemary & Co. Both brushes are made from Kolinsky male tail hair mounted on short black handles of lacquered wood.
The brushes are a Kolinsky Sable Pointed Round (Size 10) and a Kolinsky Sable Rigger.
“Having lived in Asia and studied Chinese Brushwork my search for brushes that suited my style perfectly was a difficult one. I needed brushes that would not only load well but glide over the paper surface and release colour as and when I wanted. Brush control is a highly important part of my technique and from years of studying I was aiming to create the best. I know that watercolour literally sings when pigment is applied to paper with the right equipment. For this reason, I have designed my personal brush collection for a wide variety of brushstrokes that give me brilliant effects."
"My brush set of the Size 10 and Rigger is all some artists will need. The Size 10 is great for working on all subjects whilst the rigger is fantastic for not only adding detail but picking up small amounts of pigment to strengthen individual sections of a painting." (Jean Haines).
