Brushes

One of the most common questions I am asked is “What brush should I use?” Sometimes it doesn’t matter and you use the one that “fits” the area size you have to paint, and other times it matters immensely which brush you use. Hopefully this tutorial will help clear up some of your questions.

I am writing to express my gratitude for your Acrylic Paint Tutorial. This document has helped me immensely. Originally, I was trained in painting with oils and water-colours. A while back, an artist friend encouraged me to try acrylics.  I did a few pieces but lacked the confidence to continue. Thank you so much for taking the time to create this comparison chart. Without it, I would’ve likely given up. Your chart has aided me in so many ways and I have been quite pleased with the results. I sincerely appreciate your efforts. Happy Painting!” – Meredith
