Traveling Brushes

Our world-circumnavigating Aussie friend Max just brought these three Alvaro Castagnet brushes (not for sale in the US) 
all the way from the land down unda:  8,322 miles....
just so that I can take them on to Italy for two months: 5,662 miles...
and then to the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Brazil: 9,053 miles...
then back home to Seattle: 7,000 miles....
wow, these great brushes will have traveled 30,037 miles...


  1. What size are those brushes please?

    1. Hi Tim, they are 00, 0, 2...I also have a 6 from Max's previous visit...they are great, hold a massive amount of water but retain a good point...

  2. They look like gorgeous brushes. Have fun with them.

    1. Hi Mark,
      they are gorgeous brushes! I am so eager to get to use them on the upcoming travels. Thank you for your message~~
