The Watercolour Brushes I Occasionally Use

During a quiz evening I attended the other day a question came up about filbert nuts.  That made me remember my Filbert watercolour brush.  I then figured out that the brush is named after the shape of the nut.  It might take a while but the light bulb does actually switch on in my head sometimes.  I have no idea how but my team won the quiz and we each won a bag of chocolates which were munched  with gusto.  

Today I thought I would share some of the brushes I use very occasionally.   Filbert brush at the top, flat square brush in the middle and my hake brush which I have had for years.  I use these brushes when I want to add a vast amount of water onto the paper.  My style has developed into a more delicate and controlled process from the early days that I do not use these high water retaining brushes that often now.  


  1. Dear Laura I certainly did not put that together either. So glad though it came to you and you won the chocolates. Your brushes look wonderful UN this depiction too. Have a super weekend.

  2. Congrats on winning! Love your painted brushes too.
