I was asked, ” what brushes do I need for oil painting”?
It depends on whether you want to do Portraits, Landscapes, thick or thin paint.
In general and if you are just starting out with oils, I would suggest;
A no 2 Flat, a no 4 Filbert, a no 4 Round, a no 8 Filbert, a no 14 Bright and a Palette knife.
An Artist/Painter judges the quality of a brush based on several factors: filament retention, paint pickup, steadiness of paint release, brush marks, drag and precision painting
I hope that helps.
