Good Watercolor Brushes

A good watercolor brush will allow you to paint with a smooth flow. I found that for a good brush, Mont Marte, is a good brand and it is affordable. These you can find at most art and craft stores. 

Good watercolor paintings not only depend on the skill of the artist, but also on the quality of the painting supplies that you use. One of these is a watercolor brush. It is very important to have a good brush whether you are a beginner or pro. When starting out in watercolor, always get a set of brushes – these will help you to paint thin and thick lines and you can easily put all your ideas to paper.

What I love about watercolor is that a lot of happy accidents occur.

Looking for a Good Quality Brush

When buying watercolor brushes, always keep in mind some factors, like the hair of the brush. The type of hair a brush has defines how much water and paint it can hold. The bristles of the brushes are very important, some may have natural, synthetic, or sable fibers – so make sure you choose the best one.

I remember when I started painting, I had no idea what would be a good brush and what wouldn’t. So after months of struggling with brushes of which the bristles kept falling out, I started doing research and I found Mont Marte brushes, which aren’t very expensive, but they definitely work very well and I have been using them since. My favorite ones are the round detail brushes, I use them for everything I paint.

So at the end of the day, it’s all up to you what brush works best for you and what type of style you want to portray. 

I hope you can find the brush which is best for you – a brush that can hold a nice amount of water and paint or have good bristles. Remember there are round, oval, wash, and flat brushes and all of them can be used for different purposes.

Happy painting!
