- The Super Soft Hog Old Holland brush range, to be honest, doesn't stand out at first glance, compared to other brands. However it is when you start to use them that you experience the difference that I have grown to love about them. They really do perform and impart a beautiful painterly feel to your mark making especially with oil paint. They are certainly a perfect complement and extension to the bodied texture of Old Holland Classic Colour.
- The larger than normal belly to the handle perfectly separates the brushes in your hand when standing at the easel with a fist full of brushes, keeping colours clean and unadulterated. Possibly the most exciting feature for me was the responsiveness of the handle especially from sizes 16 down and the way this impacted my painting experience.
- The timber is slightly flexible which I had never experienced before in a brush and this translated to a real communication between the artist and the artwork. A real finese to mark making. Equally the larger sizes had a strong feeling in the hand whilst remaining beautifully balanced and connected to the painting. I had always felt the oposite with larger brushes from other brands.
- "...I am extremely excited to recommend these brushes to all oil painters...". Warwick Deane (artist).
