I am trying to remove the files inside many folders

For example:

I am in project folder and I want to remove file with range of junk-5.jpg to junk-10.jpg.

junk-5 and junk-10 are within different folders....

I have tried rm -r junk-5.jpg in project folder but it said no such file or directory.

Are there any faster way to do this? Thanks a lot

find ~/project/ \( -name "junk-[56789].jpg" -o -name "junk-10.jpg" \) -delete

Assuming bash 4+:

shopt -s globstar
rm ./**/junk{5..10}.jpg
