I have been using my Games & Gears Kolinsky Sable brushes on these. At this point I find myself a bit frustrated with the brushes. Neither of the two I have used hold their points particularly well and I find myself "fighting" the brush as I work. I have only used the shorter S1 which is suppose to be a wet-blending brush and the #1. I started with the #1 as that is my preferred size for painting and is fairly close in size to the #1 Da Vinci. I have been working with the S1 on larger areas and because its much shorter in length. I still like the triangular shaped handle on my Da Vinci's better. At this point since I don't do two brush blending I don't see the point in having a double headed brush. I certainly can't have paint on both ends at the same time as it would dry on one end before I could use it, partially because of my painting style and partially because of the climate and altitude.
Here are the pictures from after a couple of hours of work (I probably shouldn't throw movies I haven't seen into the DVD player in my workroom when I'm trying to paint, I would get more done). I think I'll block in the rest of the colors and try and get everything finished up this week.
