This is a huge topic to cover in detail as there are so many different sizes, shapes, and uses for watercolour brushes. Many of the brushes sold are not necessary. It is common for beginners to believe that owning a vast array of brushes will help them. Unfortunately this is not the case, only learning the skill to use them will help. I'm going to cover some general information about brushes, which I hope will enable you to make an informed choice when you come to buy your own. I have described the brushes I use, and my reasons for using them, but ultimately the choice is yours.

Putting a "Spotlight on Watercolour"
I am a watercolour artist and tutor. Welcome to my painting blog.
I'll share my new paintings and news with you here - before they're published on the main site. I'll provide information about watercolour painting techniques and explain my techniques in more detail than is possible on my site. I'll also post some step-by-step demonstrations and a host of other things.
