I recently got my hands on a new set of brushes from an exciting new start up brand called Hayroo – (Click Here For Company Website), I have so far used them to work on two study paintings and I must say I have been impressed with the results.
Whilst I don’t intend to write a formal product review in the conventional sense, I did feel the need to get a blog post written to show my personal views on working with the brushes and the results of doing so.
What’s in the box?
I really do believe that you get bang for your buck with these brushes; they hold up well under detailed, gentle, soft blending paint work as well as choppy, loose and rough paint slinging. The brushes keep their shape well and have a good flexibility with a generous amount of bristles.
Another sure tell tale sign of a good or bad brush is how they hold up to a good clean up; I have managed to clean each and every brush after each painting session without losing any hair so far and without any splaying, misshapen hairs; and that is more than I can say for a lot of the leading brands that I have used over the past few years.
These two paintings are my results so far from using the Hayroo Brushes, the length of the brushes helped me to paint more loosely and expressively than I usually do which gave a nice change of pace.
I’m planning my first proper plein air painting session for some time in the next couple of weeks and I will be using the Hayroo Brushes for that and documenting the process throughout the day, be sure to subscribe to my blog to stay updated!
Overall, I definitely recommend anyone looking for a new set of brushes to check out this exciting new brand and give them a go!
