Fine Art Brush Sets: The Collection

Brush Collection: Fine Art Banner


Over the past year we have posted over 50 Free Brush Sets on the blog and we realize that many of our new users haven’t had the chance to go back into our archives and access all the great content in our older posts. So we are putting together some Brush Set Collection posts for you. Here we will link you to all the Free Brush Sets in a given theme. So catch-up on the sets you missed and revisit that incredible art that was made using them in their original posts.


This first post is a comprehensive collection of 12 Fine Art effect brushes that we have posted over the past year. The linked sets cover the gamut of traditional fine art medium; from sketching pencils to oil paints, and from watercolor paints to abstract textures, we even have a grab bag of favorite blending brushes. Fill up your collection and remember to show us your work with the #AutodeskSketchBook tag on your Social Media posts.
