How Many Paintbrushes Do I Need?

Artists do not typically use just one paintbrush all the time. In reality artists need several different paintbrushes in all shapes and sizes in order to create a masterpiece. If you are just starting out in the painting world, pick paintbrushes of all sizes. You will need large and small and something in-between! Surgeons typically use several different sizes of scalpels when operating, an artist is no different- he needs different size tools for his operation also!
