Natures Details Brush Set
Sarah Morrish's fascination and passion of illustrating the natural world stems from childhood and throughout her life this has followed her alongside her main careers, in education for nearly 20 years and latterly in conservation. Her work in education now continues - in lifelong learning, as she teaches courses and workshops in Hampshire and Dorset UK, in botanical art and natural history illustration, as well as online tuition from late 2016. Watercolour is the predominant medium she uses, but her detailed work is also portrayed using graphite pencil, and gouache. In addition, she is fascinated by painting on vellum and really values the beautiful qualities of painting on this challenging medium. She is particularly inspired by the plants and species found in ancient and declining habitats, such as ancient woodland and hedgerows. Throughout all of her work, in paintings and teaching, her fascination with the natural world and conservation is shared with others, along with her love for detail and accuracy.
Her work has won several awards, the latest being an RHS Silver Medal in 2016, for illustrations depicting winter twigs and buds larger than life, with one being x40 life size!
The brushes in the ‘Natures Details’ set have been chosen by Sarah due to their consistent quality and durability.
''There is a good range to cover many techniques for painting detail. From the fine hair of a Harvest mouse to the speckles on an egg. The Series 33 size 4 is great for initial washes, to the size 2 for smaller areas. The Series 323 spotter size 2 is perfect for the early stages of detail and to refine it even further with the Series 66 size 0. You will not be disappointed and this set is versatile for both botanical and natural history illustration. I’ve been buying brushes from Rosemary and Co for several years now and have also recommended them to my students. I keep returning to them each time I try other brushes, and even though I have one other favourite brush (Isabey 6228 size 2), the Rosemary & Co brushes are the main ones I use for both painting on paper and vellum. As time went on I thought it would be great to have a brush set to promote to my students and to make buying brushes easier for them. Rosemary & Co offer consistent quality and durability, they are delivered promptly and are packaged really well to avoid damaging the brushes in transit. On top of that they are British made, which I am all for!'' Sarah Morrish 2016.
