Hi everyone

Just wanted to tell everyone about this online site i found this afternoon   www.rosemaryandco.com
where they sell al types of painting fabulous brushes as well as some art material.

Here in Australia we pay way too much for our art supplies as we don't have many suppliers and i am so envious of all the places people in the USA can get their supplies and its so much cheaper.
 
I was amazed to buy from this company a W&N Cotman watercolour sketchers pocket box set for a 1/3 the price (which included postage from the UK) that i would pay in Australia.

Hope this is of assistance to struggling painters like myself.

I'm here in the UK and found Rosemary & co about 3 years ago. 

I've always loved sable brushes but the W&N are so expensive, yet Rosemary's best watercolour sables are fantastic and so much cheaper!   I now have several of her brushes and certainly wouldn't buy any other for my watercolours.   

They are very helpful both by phone and email, and I can recommend them.  Their after sales service is great - any problems they do sort them out for you.  Give them a try - I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

Remann thanks for your info. Also i couldn't find where you posted your Teddy painting it's fantastic. Well done. I painted one for my daughter's baby girl who is just 1mth old now so i know how hard it was to paint (well it was for me).
