Luana Luconi Winner selects Silver Brushes for her paintings and recommends them for her students

One day a friend offered me a couple of Silver Brushes to try. Until then I had been using the same Italian, French, British, and Spanish brushes I had learned to use while living in Italy and Switzerland. But that was it.  The Silver Brush had all the properties I had been searching for in all the other brushes combined.  I have been using Silver Brushes in my portrait studio ever since.

The Grand Prix filberts are the perfect brush for control. They have a belly capable of carrying a large amount of paint to the canvas, combined with just enough rigidity that only a Chunking bristle can provide, with the added bonus of a softer, more flexible "give" that allows for beautiful calligraphic strokes.

Then I also discovered Silver soft haired mops for blending, sable cats tongues for details in portraiture, and liners for drawing with paint to restate design elements.

As a workshop instructor, I always encourage my students to buy the best they can afford even when just starting out.  Students can use Ruby Satin and Bristlon, both synthetic filament brushes, with confidence that they will withstand repeated scrubbing and abuse. Their appeal is their longevity making them a great value, dollar for dollar.

The process of creating art is enhanced and made easier by using the right tools. Letting the tools do the work allows the artist the freedom to concentrate on the statement. Start with the best and stay with it.
