Alex Venezia Basic Set
I've been exclusively using Rosemary & Co. brushes for years now, and I've tried many of their brushes before settling into this great set. These are the main brushes I've found myself always grabbing when working on my figurative and still-life work. The Eclipse series are the perfect brushes for my first blocking-in stages of a painting, because of their softness it allows me to lay down paint without lifting any and creates beautiful edge work. For this same reason, it's also my go-to for Alla Prima painting brush and the best mongoose replacement I've used. Then the synthetic rounds for my following layers where I hone in on smaller shapes and subtle detail. This brush being slightly more stiff allows little pieces of the underpainting to show through which can give a nice effect. A great brush for scrubbing when they've been worn down a bit.
