Last summer when I was teaching in France, my students and I would sometimes roam around a market or village taking pictures. Here I captured one of my students capturing the same scene that appealed to me.
But these are my workhorse brushes (for my small paintings). They are all Silver Bristlon. The smallest is a filbert, the rest are brights. The filbert is a size 2 (I use it for drawing). The brights are sizes 4, 6 and 8. I use the different sizes based on the size of the stroke I want to make.
I replace each of these about once a month, when the bristles start to splay and I can't get crisp edges anymore. But I paint 4-8 hours a day, at least 5 days a week, which I call heavy use. I paint on Ampersand Gessobord panels - these brushes work very well on this surface. If I worked on canvas, I might use something different. Rosemary makes a brush called Ivory that is pretty much identical to mine. Let me know if you have any questions. : )
