Considered one of the best watercolor brushes available, the standards for the Series 7 Kolinsky Sable brushes were set in 1866, when Queen Victoria gave orders to Winsor & Newton to produce the finest watercolor brushes in her favorite size; the No. 7. Victoria would settle for only the most exceptional tools.
Today, the Series 7 is made by hand in England from the finest kolinsky sable hair, encased in rust-proof, nickel plated ferrules with short, black, polished handles. Each brush comes to a crisp point and snaps back into shape during use, with the right degree of spring for superior control between the brush and painting surface. The color flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow for flowing, gestural strokes. Artists who seek quality and longevity look no further than the Series 7.
