3.0 out of 5 stars Outdoors, yes. Indoors, no., 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Derwent 2301975 Waterbrush Multi-Pack Brushes with Clear Water Barrel - Pack of 3 (Chisel Tip, Fine Tip and Medium Tip) (Office Product)
Derwent waterbrushes, set of three, are a good accompaniment to water soluble pencils when used en plein air. The set comprises a fine brush, a medium round brush and a medium chisel (flat) brush, all with nylon bristles. The reservoir holds just the amount of water needed for several small pieces, moleskine sketches etc. Filled at home, they remained watertight in my backpack throughout a six mile walk across fields and through woods.

In use, they're so -so; I'm not sure how much is down to my unfamiliarity with their use. They feel okay, just like a fat pen. The bristles are charged with water and purged of any colour pick up by squeezing the reservoir barrel. I found this fairly easy to gauge. However, I did find that the brush required recharging for blending larger blocks of colour and this didn't give as satisfactory finish as a larger, ordinary brush does. For more detailed work, they're better.

At around ten pounds for the set, they're good to have for going out and about, but I'd still take a larger brush. If working from home or studio, with a source of water, I wouldn't bother with them; just get a jar of clean water and a few good, ordinary brushes.

Update: since writing this review, I've seen a youtube tutorial in which the painter was using one of these filled with Indian ink, diluted or neat I don't know as she didn't say anything about the equipment she was using, just the techniques for quick outdoors sketching using this brush, graphite pencil and charcoal. It looked very much like the medium sized brush. Just saying.
