What do I really use to paint with?



I love trying brushes, but I try new brushes in sketches, not in serious paintings. If I like the brush, I'll use it in a real painting!

Every brush has nuances. Some brushes are just better at certain things. Once you know the feel of the brush, you know what to use it for.

These reviews are intended as shortcuts to knowing what each brush will do when you use it so you can choose brushes easier.

Sketchbook only, no serious painting! Gorgeous, but barely any sizing so it's very delicate.
