There are different types of brushes you can use in your watercolor paintings.
They come in different types of hair and fiber (synthetic brushes are usually made of nylon or polyester).
A good brush should be able to keep water and paint in its body and distribute it smoothly on your watercolor paper. It should also not loose it's shape after few strokes. A good brush should be able to go back to it's shape and should hold a point.
The best brushes are made with sable hair.
There are also flat brushes made of bristle. These are good if you work with a lot of paint and water creating large washes.
Brushes come in different sizes, depending on what you want to achieve ... big stroke and washes or more of a detailed work.
Here's a list of the most common ones:
