Brushes Used: #12 flat, #6 bright, #6 round, #1 round, #8 filbert, #6 flat

Easel: This is optional. You can work flat on a table with no easel for most paintings. An easel comes in handy because they save table space and some techniques like dripping require a vertical canvas. able top easels are great, light weight and affordable.
