There is a wide variety of brushes, both in terms of size and material and selection of the right brush can make a huge difference to the result, but like all these thing is a matter of personal preference. For the last ten years I have been using sable brushes for all jobs except dry-brushing and varnishing. Kolinsky sable brushes seem to last longer and retain their shape much better than other materials. This means that although they cost more, they last you much longer. Recently I discovered miniature brushes, these have much shorter bristles than standard brushes meaning that you have much better control of where the paint goes. Without a shadow of a doubt the best brushes I have tried are “Windsor and Newton Series 7 Miniature”. These have a much finer point than other brushes that I have tried and so you can use a Number 2 brush to paint lines that you would normally use a Number 0 or smaller.
