 Brush shapes, their types and sizes, explanation with images of brush shapes, their roles and sizes

a definition :

      Brushes for painting are the intermediate tool between colors and surface, and they are the basic factor for forming strokes or linear lines. The brush expands over time to have special brushes for every color, from watercolor to oil and others. is to get the best use of each color and match the brushes with the intensity of the color. We previously dedicated an article explaining the most suitable brushes according to each type. The link to the article is below

     Brush compatibility with color has to do with color thickness, transparency or opacity, surface texture, and brush texture, all of which are issues I talked about in the article above, while the subject of the article concerns each of the shapes, dimensions and sizes of brushes.

Official brush sizes:

       Brush sizes are determined by everything in the brush, including its length, head length, and bristle length, but the most important brush sizes are:

- Hair length, ranging from 13 to over 35 mm

- Hair width, ranging from 3 to 12 mm

And other sizes such as:

- Metal brush/ferrule collar, its sizes range from 32 to 46 mm.

- Overall length, from 210 mm to large type

Brush types:

The variety of brushes is particularly important in the different strokes, which allows the artist to create various details. Brushes vary in head shape, length and size. As for texture, each brush shape comes with a soft texture and a rough texture to match any colors that may be used.

. Round brush: It is considered the best known and most used. It is available in sizes from smallest to largest. It is used as the first tool for linear strokes. Its best known sizes are (7 mm32) - (5 mm32) - (4 mm32) It allows you to draw the first details of the painting or additions.

. Liner Brush: Available in small sizes and used for fine details, drawing hair, or drawing three-dimensional details such as lips and skin folds.

. Flat brush: Available in many sizes, from small (32 mm1) to (32 mm15), it allows you to draw direct or clean lines, draw backgrounds or decorations.

. Fan Brush: Available in full gradients, this is used for drawing wavy lines or drawing from nature, such as trees and grass. It is also used for mixing colors, i.e. as a sweeping tool.

. Egbert Brush: Available in full grades and used for touch-ups or redefinition of lines

. Short angular brush: It is used for the background or visible lines. It is available in large and medium sizes.

. Dagger Brush: It comes in full degrees and is used for drawing spiral lines or drawing small details thanks to its acute angle.

Each brush has a specific advantage over the other, but each brush is not limited to one or two uses. On the contrary, the artist uses it according to his desire and his idea for what he aspires to present. All brushes have different gradations, which is up to 32 degrees of hair width. Some heads have different sizes depending on the distribution of the hair. Sometimes there are brushes that have a large hair length and a very small width, so the sizes may be different from one type to another.
