Considered to be 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.
Today, the Series 7 is made from pure Kolinsky Sable Hair, encased in rust-proof, nickel plated ferrules with short, black, polished handles. Each brush is handmade from high quality raw materials.
Every Series 7 brush comes to a crisp point, the natural spring in the brush sustains the point and creates superior control between the brush and painting surface. Color flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow gestural strokes. Artists who seek quality and longevity will look no further than the Series 7.
