Brushes come in a variety of shapes and each are better used for a specific painting purpose than another. A round brush is actually more pointed and used for very detailed painting, such as making words or letters. A flat shaped brush is used for putting paint on something quick and even. A bright shaped brush is actually a flat brush that has very hard or stiff bristles and is a good way to put paint into the canvas weave when working with a thinner paint. A rigger is a round brush with long bristles and traditionally is used for fine lines and when painting with an oil based paint or with a watercolor.
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?
