Watercolorist Dean Mitchell of Florida loves new stuff and recently put one of our new featured “Simply Must Haves” to the test! Dean tried out The Miller’s Pseudo Sable Watercolor Brushes, and Boy! Did he get incredible results! His painting, entitled, “The Artist Bob Ragland”, is a true testimony of Dean’s wonderful professional talent and what he can do with a truly great product!
Dean had this to say about the New Miller’s Pseudo Sable Brushes:
“The brushes are just OUTSTANDING. They just turned out to be better than I expected. Cheap Joe’s has a real qualitative group of brushes in the (Miller’s Pseudo Sables). I just love they way they hold the water for the pigments. Whatever the synthetic material used for those brushes, it’s really nice. Most synthetic brushes I’ve tried aren’t very good. These truly are excellent!” Dean Mitchell
