As part of the preparation for my Teacups course I have been playing with some new fine brushes. I’ve used fine round brushes, pointed filbert and domes filberts and spotters.
Right at the moment, I’m loving the spotters but I’m certainly not locking them in as a preference yet. So I thought I’d open up a discussion on this topic so I can see what you all use.
And in recent years I have been enjoying using an extended point, particularly for paint-only architecture sketches.
This brush works really well for long straight lines when I’m using a pulling motion, but for teacup patterns, I often want more freedom to make all kinds of strokes with my brush. So the extended point doesn’t feel right for me for teacup sketches.

But enough about my preferences…
I would love to hear from you – what brush do you use for fine details? and why?
