I've tried a lot of different brushes over the years, searching for a brand and series of brushes that best communicate my expression. I have finally got my creative mits on the illusive DAS 1180 Series.
These are the brushes that the New Zealand artist John Crump uses and which I've been trying to find a distributor based in the UK or Europe for yonks!
Every type of brush has character and a purpose and are expressed through the combination of the brush's shape, material, length and weight.
I have found the 1180 series to be surprisingly enjoyable brushes to use. They don't have the finesse of some of the other brands that I use, but they brim with personality!
Even though I had to order them from New Zealand, I wouldn't hesistate in the event of having to orser some more.
