Academy of Botanical Art Supply List: Brushes for Botanical Watercolor


Understanding pigments is as important as learning about watercolor brushes. The watercolor painting brush must have a full barrel to hold the right amount of paint or water and it must spring back into shape when applying pigment. The Academy teaches a two-brush method. Using one brush to hold the paint and the other to hold the water saves you money because you are not always rinsing the paint off your brush and wasting pigment.

We recommend purchasing two sets of #00, #0, #1, #2, #3, and #6. Alternately, purchase one set, and an extra #2 or #3. At the very least, start with two #1 and two #3 brushes and two mixing brushes, and build your collection from there.

The #8 brush is wonderful for painting large orchid leaves. When you are ready, purchase two #8 brushes. Enjoy!
