Brushes - Brushes: Please use these as a guide of what I am planning to use. These are brushes I use very often. You do not need to have the exact brand of brushes that I use. When it comes to a Bright you might be able to use a single bright as one way to save money. My students often paint with different tools. I believe you use what you have and are comfortable with until it doesn’t work for you. This list of brushes and information should be used as a guide and I highly recommend you make this work within your own personal budget or painting process.
