Terry Harrison Masterstroke Brushes

The Terry Harrison Masterstroke Brush range is a student-quality brush range that has been endorsed by Terry Harrison. Manufactured by Pro Arte in Yorkshire, they can be used alongside Terry Harrison's instructional dvds and books to create artwork from the demonstrations. Each brush type is available in three sizes, giving you the choice to select the style and size that will perfectly fit your painting techniques, regardless the size of your painting. The small sizes brushes are ideal if you are working on a small scale, up to the size of around 7 x 10 inches. A medium brush may be the brush to go for if your work is a little larger, around 15 x 22 inches. For any artworks larger than this then the large sized brushes would be the size to opt for.

Each of the brushes is finished with an anthracite ferrules set on a pearlised handle; they will make a stylish addition to any brush collection!

The price structure remains consistent amongst all the different styles of brush, so no matter which shapes you want to buy, those of the same size will be the same price. Moderately priced, they are the ideal choice for students, beginners and those with lower budgets. Although intended for watercolour, you will find a lot of the brushes can also be used for acrylic and oil painting.
