Jackson's Shiro Hog Brushes stand up to expressive, bold mark making and broad brush strokes. Ideal for artists that want to create texture within their work, the bristles within each brush are full of spring. The strength of the brush is due to the fact that unlike many lower cost bristle brushes which are boiled to straighten hairs, Shiro brushes do not undergo this process. This means that your brushes will last considerably longer and the strength of hair within each brush will be maintained.

Favoured among portrait and realist painters, Da Vinci's Black Sable brushes are the perfect tools for delicate blending and smoothing out ridges within your painting. Russian black sable lies directly between artist Chungking bristle and the finest Kolinsky red sable - this gives the painter the benefits of red sable; its stiffness allows for bristlelike strokes, only smoother without marking the paint layers.

Eilidh Geddes won the People’s Choice Award for her portrait of Beano, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, in our Pastel Portraits Competition back in September 2016. It was no surprise to learn that Eilidh has an understanding of animals that goes beyond mere admiration – she is currently studying Veterinary Biosciences and her pet portrait commissions help fund her studies.

New Schmincke Watercolour Mediums - Three brand new mediums have been introduced to help you get the most out of your watercolour painting. Applying the Transparent Watercolour Ground to a surface will allow watercolour painting on surfaces such as canvas, painting boards and wood. The Lift-Off Medium is applied to watercolour paper before it is painted upon to allow dried colour to be removed, modified or corrected. The Granulation Spray can change the granulating properties of Horadam Watercolours. https://www.jacksonsart.com/search/?q=WSA704250%2BWSA704500%2BWSA708060%2BWSA737015&utm_source=G+&utm_medium=SchminckeMediums100217&utm_campaign=2017_02_10_Horadam_Launch
