Below is a helpful guide to different size paint brushes. On the left you'll see round paintbrushes and on the right are flat paintbrushes. Flats and rounds are two types of brushes you want in your collection (you can watch the on-demand class on paintbrushes here). You definitely don't need every single size brush, but it is size to have a variety including some larger brushes, some medium brushes and then some smaller brushes. This will give you a lot of different options when you are painting to achieve different looks and effects. For example, you may want a flat in 24, 16, 10 and 6. Then a round brush in 20, 14, 10, 2 and 0. If you have any questions about paintbrushes and selecting sizes, please let me know in the comments below.
