Choosing the Brushes

If one wants to create homogeneous painting surface irrespective of the type of support then they can follow the following formulae:
  1. Course support: Rougher brushes; paint slightly fluid (rough canvas surface; so bristle brushes)
  2. Smooth support: smoother brushes; paint slightly fluid (smoother panel surface; so soft nylon watercolor brushes)
  3. Arm Movement: Painting process remains similar but arm movement needs to be adjusted accordingly. Full arm movement for bigger size and full wrist movement at least for smaller size. Here the scale might have some impact on technique but as close one can get.
