I sound pretentious but good god I just can't paint with anything that's not a Winsor Sable. I've tried so many bloody brushes and they all just suck so much. I'd love to save money . . . but alas, I'm a slave to the series 7.
Well, you don't save money by spending it on brushes you don't use!
While Raphael and Winsor are my serious brushes, I do use the sable nail art brushes from Amazon for metals and whatnot. Two bucks for three disposable brushes : https://www.amazon.com/Brushes-Professional-Sable-Brush-Deta...
I did get the Citadel Starter Brush in a Citadel paint set and I'm impressed how long it lasted. Much better than the older Citadel Starter Brushes from way back. No idea how to best buy one, though.
Walmart has good workhouse brushes for drybrushing and slopping washes.
