With the delicate watercolors and biological illustrations, Scott tends to use quality synthetic brushes for his work, finding that springy, flat or round brushes work best for his style. The thoughtful work requires a steady hand and pointed brush, that holds its shape. Even if Scott works in acrylics, or creates studies for his landscapes, he uses fine watercolor brushes with acrylic washes. Soft haired brushes, synthetics like the Faux Kolinsky or Faux Squirrel have tapered bellies made to hold the fluid and give the artist ultimate control over the work.
