Watercolour Brushes for Beginners, the Essentials Set

In collaboration with Jackmans's Art Materials, I am delighted to bring you this basic set of watercolour brushes.

This set of 3 high quality synthetic brushes are everything you need to get started!


These are the brushes I recommend for my course ‘Basic Watercolour Techniques (for Beginners)

The right brush is essential for controlling water levels and getting great results:

There are many different brushes you can potentially use for watercolor painting but a round brush (the traditional name for a brush with a point) is the first brush you need. These versatile brushes hold plenty of paint for smooth application but the point allows surprisingly fine details to be rendered. This set contains two round brushes for details and larger areas.

In addition, a large flat brush is perfect for applying water to your paper, pre-wetting and perfecting large flat and graduated washes.

Using a brush that is too small causes numerous problems including drying lines and back-runs. These brushes will give you the flow and control you need to get your basic techniques right. Even when you move on to more advanced work they will still form the backbone of your practice.

These brushes are handmade in Germany, fully vegan and suitable for watercolor artists of all levels

Included in this set:

3 lovingly crafted brushes for watercolorists


Synthetic Round Size 8

Synthetic Round Size 12

Synthetic Flat Wash Brush 1.5”


Jackman's high quality, handmade, synthetic size 8 and 12 round brushes

  • A crisp point that maintains during use.

  • The perfect snap & spring, giving the artist an exceptional ‘give & take' between the brush and painting surface.

  • Superior, consistent & even flow control from the belly of the brush straight through to the point.

Great value good quality


I really like using these brushes for painting flowers as they have some spring for painting petal shapes etc. They have a lovely point and hold a good amount of paint. Haven't used the flat brush so much but all in all an excellent buy. Great for using alongside my softer brushes.

What Mike thinks.


The 2 round brushes are very nice to use and as good as my semi synthetic brushes. The large flat is also very good .I would recommend them to pros and beginners alike.


Great brushes

Really pleased with my brushes - for the performance, unbeatable price!


Amazing florals finally launch!

This is the best set you can possibly get for florals and so many uses for other things too. You’ll fall in love :-)
