What types of brushes are there?

 

Round brushes

Round brushes have a pointed tip and are great for creating fine lines and details. They are ideal for outlines and lettering. Round brushes are best used for detailed work, such as painting flowers, animals or small details in a landscape. They can also be used for calligraphy and lettering.

Flat brushes

Flat brushes have a flat shape and are great for making wide strokes and filling in large areas. They are ideal for painting backgrounds and flat surfaces. The best use for flat brushes is to quickly paint large areas, such as backgrounds and skies. They can also be used to create texture, such as ragged clouds or grassy areas.

Filbert brushes

Filbert brushes have a round shape and are great for creating soft edges and blending. They are ideal for blending colours and creating a smooth transition between different parts of a painting. Filbert brushes are best used for blending and smoothing, such as creating a gradual sky or blending colours in a landscape. They can also be used for portrait painting and other fine art applications.

Fan brushes

Fan brushes have a fan-shaped tip and are great for creating texture and special effects. They are ideal for creating hair, fur and other textured surfaces. The best applications for fan brushes are creating texture, such as painting hair or fur, and special effects, such as creating a mist or haze effect.

Comparison and explanation of different types of brush hairs (natural vs synthetic)

Natural bristles, such as sable hair, are made of animal hair and are known for their durability and ability to hold a large amount of paint. They are most suitable for oil and acrylic paints, but can be expensive. Synthetic brush bristles, such as nylon or polyester, are made from artificial materials and are less expensive than natural bristles. They are most suitable for watercolour and gouache paintings and are more resistant to solvent damage. It is important to choose the right brush for the type of paint you are using and the effect you want to achieve. It is worth investing in a good collection of brushes so that you have the right tool for your artwork.
