Handy brushes can bring interest to the artist’s work. The choice of oil paintbrush depends on the painting technique. Different textures, shapes, and models of brushes have different functions.

Large-scale brushes are usually used to make large-stroke textures and spread large color blocks, while small-scale brushes are usually used to draw thin lines and color points. The models of paintbrushes sold on the market are not uniform, and paintbrushes of the same model of different brands and textures vary greatly. And the model division is different, there are 0-24, 0-12, 0-16 and so on. Hard brushes such as bristles have a complete range of sizes and models. Soft brushes such as mink generally do not have large pens, while fan-shaped brushes (mostly mane or artificial hair) do not have small ones.
