Contrary to popular belief, artists do not normally use just one brush when painting a picture. Depending on the work, they may employ a variety of brushes for different colours and strokes, which is why paint brushes come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials.
Acrylic paint brushes for example, come in a number of different types including the round pointed tip for detailed work, flat square end for bold strokes, flat end with curved edges for heavy colour application, flat oval shaped end for blending work, flat fanned end for textural effects and flat angled end for corner work. Because there are so many different brushes on the market, rather than choosing them individually, beginners would be better off opting for a brush set that includes all the main brushes they’ll need.
