Can anyone help me figure out why this keeps happening? The bristles on my brushes wear down at an incredibly rapid rate! I'm talking replacing my brushes every 1.5 paintings I do... Now I do technically know why my brushes are doing this but I'd like to know what I can do to alleviate it, anything short of changing my technique. I paint in oils and I paint thinly....very thinly. I don't dilute the paint with any thinners, I apply it to the canvas and essentially scrub with my brush until the desired thinness...So obviously the amount of friction from my scrubbing is causing my bristles to wear down...but I've never heard of any body replacing brushes every 1.5 paintings strictly due to technique....I clean my brushes after every session and they just look so used and abused? Should I be using mediums to enhance spreadability thus lowering the amount of friction the brush endures?
