it is very good

Opus Allegro Watercolour Brushes

These brushes are my absolute favorites! About a year ago, I received two as a gift from my Canadian daughter-in-law and fell in love with the feel of them. They have a nice snap, and hold just the right amount of water for my painting style. I couldn’t find them anywhere in the US, and was thrilled to pick up this set on a recent trip to Vancouver. Love this brand, and love Opus art stores!

Great mid-budget wc brushes

I’ve used these for years as go-to workhorses for (acrylic) ink brushwork on graphic novels. They hold a good amount of liquid and retain their points pretty well, despite the pretty harsh medium I use them for. Recommended!
