dagger brush

I've two paintings going now. One is of an orchid for the Florida show. The 2nd painting is of shoreline brush by the pond we often walk to. I'm finding I don't have the right brush for painting the twigs. Best would be a dagger brush that has a long point and is flattish. I've been using acrylic medium to get the paint to flow. I'm striving for graceful, tubular twig lines. A liner brush, which I also don't have, would make dark edging easier. I need a trip to the store or to loosen-up my application. If I put in 2 hours in the studio I consider it a good work day.
