New Brush: Rosemary and Co, Comber Brush

October 17, 2017

The second interesting brush Rosemary offered me, was their Series 2250 Flat Comber.

The gimmick here is, we have a flat, with tiny serrations along the edge. Giving you rake-like marks – a series of parallel lines.

I do this normally using a pointed round and grinding the brush into the palette so the tip splays out into a jagged fan. But that’s kind of a grim way to handle your brushes. Nice that Rosemary’s created this serrated flat, to give you a similar effect.

I have a few more examples from figure drawing, but there’s hand-drawn nudity involved. If you’re of legal age to view such scandalous material, you can click over to my life drawing blog. Otherwise, you’ll have to take the word of that one example above.

But seriously, it’s really a neat effect – and I’m sure I’ll find many applications for this brush next time I go landscape painting.
