Materials: All about Brushes
Lecture no. 24 from the course: The Complete Painter: Lessons from the Masters
Taught by Professor David Brody | 42 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses
Although almost all artists today paint with brushes, painters have experimented with an enormous variety of tools—from fingers to squeegees. In this lesson, you’ll explore the two main categories of brushes, their variability in price, and how to best care for them. You’ll also learn why hog hair is the best natural bristle and why “sable” brushes are almost never made from sable.
