Charlie – I think you need to open a #BrushFetish forum here. I think Tonya and I could easily keep it going 😉
Seriously though I’ve always wondered why art supply stores never have brush events. There are many paint events during the year (where you can go to a specific retailer to demo paints on a given day), but I’ve yet to see any of the major art stores host a brush event where you get to try out some brushes. When I was younger I only worked in oils and just started working in watercolor about 18 months ago. It was all new to me and I bought nearly 3 dozen brushes, trial and error one or two at a time, before I “found” my brushes.
