A brush in painting is worth what you feel it is worth. I say that because talking with artists you get mixed messages as to how much you should spend on a brush. The golden rule is to buy the best that you can afford when buying art supplies, however that doesn’t mean the old brushes are no good. For instance you can’t get a new brush to make background trees as well as an old brush that has been worn down. Old brushes are great for dry brush techniques. Spending money on good brushes does pay off in the end however, your brush will last for a very long time and you will feel good using it. So new brushes are worth every penny and the old brushes are worth every penny, it’s how you use them makes the difference.
