Five square/flat headed brushes from Artists Loft ranging between half a centimeter and 3 inches.
Two small round headed brushes ranging between half a centimeter and a full centimeter. Also, and older square headed brush which we will talk about in the lesson.
I wouldn’t worry too much about the size of the brush. I think it’s best to work intuitively.

I also use a palette, a cloth for excess paint, a 9×12 canvas and a small dish of water. I drew the initial sketch with woodless color pencils and a fine tipped sharpie.
