Comments about Richeson Plein Air Travel Brush Set:
The short handles on the bigger brushes in this set are great- one doesn't normally find such useable brushes. The pouch they come in stands up. If you aren't going to use all the brushes you can remove a few, giving you room to carry pencil and pen. All in all a fabulous travel set up. So glad a friend of mine had one, prompting several of her friends, including me, to purchase this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

All that I needed
from Oxnard, ca
This is all that I need to paint on location.
from New York
Great compact set. The brushes work well and given my limited work space it's now my go to set. Haven't used outside yet but should be good as well!

Great started group of brushes!
from Washington, Indiana
I was looking for a starter set of watercolor brushes and came across these online. These seemed to be good variety of brushes and the case made it an obvious choice. I have painted with them a couple of times now and feel they do a great job. They are not the most expensive and best quality, but I am just starting out and wanted to have something to see if I wanted to continue working with this medium. Great product.
easy to rake on the go

Excellent quality for the price!
By Mountain Mama
from Boone, NC
Like the other reviewers, I was nicely surprised by the quality of these inexpensive travel brushes! I really wanted Escoda's or Da Vinci's travel set, but those aren't in my budget at the moment, so I ordered these instead. I am not sorry! I was planning to keep them in my travel watercolor kit, but I find myself pulling them out to use when I am home.The rounds work extremely well: hold a point, have nice spring, and put down a decent amount of pigment. I'm not as pleased with the flats in the kit, but that is only because I am comparing them to sables. I haven't found a reason to pack an additional flat sable, for these will do a decent wash in a pinch.I'd order this set again in a heartbeat! Happy to have found such a great kit at an excellent price.
My first time trying this brand
I'm very happy with this purchase. The brushes are well made, and behave nicely, holding water and color, and then snapping back to shape. I'm using these in house at the moment, but hope to expand my watercolor sketching to the outdoors. The case will be great for transport. Recommended.

This set is quite nice. The case is sturdy and well made. The brushes are pretty darn good! (I use Golden Open Acrylics.) They do have very short handles, which I like, though some artists may not. The one thing I wonder about is if there are replacement brushes available. I looked and haven't found any. Regular short handled brushes are a little too long to fit in the case. When these brushes wear out, I may trim off the ends of the handles of some new brushes, as the case is very nice and will out live the included brushes.
