If you’re new to painting, choosing the right tools can be pretty overwhelming. Just like with colors, there’s a huge variety of paintbrushes to choose from.
So here — in broad strokes — is The Art League guide to paintbrushes. See below the graphic for more resources!
- The quality of hair and the manufacture process make a big difference in how a brush holds and distributes paint, and how it retains its shape and spring.
- Try starting with just a few brushes, then invest in different sizes, shapes, and styles as you learn what you need.
- Always feel free to ask at The Art League Store if you need help selecting the right brush for the job. Our supply store is staffed by working artists.
