A painter does not hold his paintbrush one specific way all of the time. He also doesn't just grasp his brush like he would if he was writing a letter and holding his pen to do so. A painter can hold his brush in several different ways to get several different results. If he holds the brush near the bristles like a pen or a pencil he will get the artist very detailed results. If the artist holds the paintbrush higher up on the brush will get the artist a completely different result. If you purchase long handled paintbrushes you can try holding your paintbrush several different ways while painting to see which one you like the best.
I am a begining oil painter. I was wondering what colors you suggest a beginer buy. I`ve heard students in my classes talking about how they use only a few "basic" colors, in which they can mix a large range of colors from. Do you have any tips?
