Well, once I got past the size surprise, I tried it out. It has a very sharp point, nice enough snap--not as stiff as synthetics, but not as soft as sable. Just about right for painting details. I couldn't really decide whether I really loved it, though, because it was too small to do very much with it. Most of my paintings are portraits and florals, so this will be very useful for details, but if I wanted a brush to do larger areas--for example, leaves, or blossoms, it's much too small. I would love to try it in maybe a size 10 or 12.
I've watched quite a lot of YouTube videos where artists have graciously shared lessons on watercolor basics and techniques. The professional artists I'm drawn to most all seem to use this line of watercolor brushes. Watercontrol and pigment manipulation is such a joy with the right tools -- I'm seeing this even early on. These three brushes are sure to be my go-to brushes as I continue to pursue this lovely art form.
