As a watercolour artist your choice of brush is like your choice of engine as a formulae one driver. If you pick the wrong thing nothing good is going to happen. Your choice of brushes is one of the most important decisions you will make as a watercolour artist.
A good watercolour brush needs to retain either a good point or a good edge and also needs to have the ability to hold enough water to make the medium do what it was designed to do – after all without water it isn’t watercolour!
We have sourced some fantastic watercolour brushes for you that present you with all the properties that we know are so important to a watercolour artist but at a reasonable price. We feel it is important to point that out because brushes is one of those areas where manufacturers can go a bit silly and charge way over the odds so we have intentionally avoided some of the big brand names where quite frankly you will pay a fortune for exactly the same bushes just because it has a brand name on the side of it. Art materials are expensive enough without paying more than you need to.
