Scrapes and dings in paint


We are undergoing a reno right now! Super exciting to have everything happening at once, but we had the painting completed befor the flooring and cabinets went in. As expected, we should have waited to do the second coat until it was all done . I now see lots of scratches and gouges from 'accidents'. My question...can I simply repaint those small areas with a brush or do I need to do the entire wall? I used a high quality paint (not behr, thanks to this website) and have lots of each color left over. Thanks for the suggestions!!

The worst is in the bathroom, semi-gloss. The others with eggshell...

You can first try to touch them up, and if you are not happy with the results, roll the whole wall.
