Do I Need a Watercolor Brush Set?

Watercolor paintbrushes generally have hairs that are longer and absorb more paint than a brush for a different kind of medium. These brushes also have shorter handles when compared to other types of paintbrushes. It is a good idea if you are just starting out with watercolor paint to purchase a watercolor brush set to use. Purchasing a set will allow you to use several different types of watercolor brushes in your first few pieces and will save you money to boot!
