Looking to buy oil painting brushes? Or would you just like a little primer about brushes and which ones your should have and why? I have posted a video tutorial for you which will cover which brushes are a good start if you are not sure where to start.

After all, buying oil painting brushes can be expensive. Actually, they should be pretty expensive because cheap brushes will fall apart fast and will end up costing you money in the long run.

Watch this video tutorial about buying oil painting brushes and you’ll see which type of hairs and which number of brush is a great place to begin.

Remember, a piece of advice I always give is buy the most expensive oil painting brushes you can afford. Cheap tools lead to frustration as well as cheap looking paintings.
