Painting Brick - not the mortar


My house has painted brick with no paint on the mortar. One side of the house needs repainting. What is the best painting method to use to duplicate the result and keep the paint off the mortar?

Use a brush by hand and spend the time to do it.

If it's on the brick and not the mortar then they probably used a thin nap roller.
