I get Birgit's newsletter and she had a link today to this demo:


She's using Da Vinci Cosmotop Sable Mix brushes. The black handle (series B) has Kolinsky red sable, blue squirrel and Russian fitch black sable, and the reddish handle (series F) has Kolinsky red sable with ox hair and fitch (both have synthetic mixed in). She uses these for her huge flower paintings, also.

Thanks Jan for this link; it's not everyday you see a landscape from a mostly floral painter):D I took a workshop from Birgit and what fun.

Here is the thread from the post I made (back in 2010) with pics.


I LOVE her work.:clap:

That's a great overview of the workshop! I would love to go to one. I've been watching all her videos on ArtistsNetwork.tv. I haven't tried a large floral yet but have a photo I want to use.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Jan for showing this video. I just love blossoms when they occur in a good place.
