Some of the best brushes for watercolor can still be budget friendly, and what is what you will find in this post.  I paint most things with a round size 4 Cotman or Princeton brush.  I also love their liners for fine details; and have recently started using the FW markers with watercolors or inks inside for all my fine line work so they made this list as well.

I also love my size 3/0 squirrel brush because it holds sooo much water!
