"I am known for giving my brushes strong punishment. My new line of Escoda Prado synthetics will face the challange like no other!"
~ Alvaro Castagnet
Alvaro Castagnet is an Uruguayan artist of world renown that has been honored in numerous art competitions. He is a sucessful author who travels the world attendig exhibitions, hosting workshops and participating as a member of the jury for international art events.
Although Castagnet is a watercolour painter, he uses a long handle synthetic Prado brush for most of his incredible work. This is not a common characteristic in watercolour technique, but it demonstrates that Castagnet uses this brush to dominate his work from a certain distance. He typically uses sizes from 6 to 14, but his set includes the intermediate sizes 8, 10 and 12.
Good brushes. I want more sizes. Andrzej Biczewski (Warszawa, Poland) on 23 May 2012
Would have liked a bigger brush at the top end, maybe a 14 or 16 instead of the 12 Bob Farmer (Highton, Australia) on 17 May 2013
Highest quality brushes with great point. Very good value! Martin Simecka (Brusperk, Czech Republic) on 8 Oct 2012
