New painting brushes

My next new project is to practice sketching with paint brushes. I will test these Chinese painting and calligraphy brushes. White brushes are made of fine goat hair, brown is pony and orange is dyed goat. This orange one is so low in quality that it can be used only as decorative item.

I have learned that best brushes for my painting styles are made of Kolinsky Sable. I have variety of brushes and most of the time I use Kolinsky brushes. I like most Raphael (8404) and Winsor & Newton (series 7) brushes. They are pricey, but very durable.
