Winsor & Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable
The Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Brushes from Winsor & Newton are made from only the finest Kolinsky Sable hair in rust proof, nickel plated ferrules with black polished handles. Every Series 7 brush comes to a defined point and moves back into shape during use, with the right degree of spring to allow superior control between the brush and surface of your artwork. Colour flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough colour carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow flowing gestural strokes.
Each brush is hand-made in England, by Winsor & Newton expert brush makers with over 150 years experience. In the larger sizes, each brush is packed into an individual box, with a tag indicating the name of the Series 7 Kolinsky brush maker who made the brush. The standards of quality for this brush were set in 1866, when HM Queen Victoria gave orders that Winsor & Newton should produce the very finest water colour brushes in her favourite size; the No.7. Since then, the handmade Series 7 Kolinsky has proven itself to be the standard –bearer in all those qualities, offering a rapier-like point, perfectly balanced spring with extraordinary capacity and flow control. For artists who appreciate exquisite quality and longevity, there is no other Kolinsky brush you'll need for watercolour painting.

Ever since I was a toddler and could hold a crayon or brush, I've been painting and drawing aided by family that have been involved in the production of paint for artists. I've a passion for drawing and painting in a variety of media, especially oil painting and drawing. I also enjoy using coloured pencils, watercolour inks and gouache.
When not in store I can be found teaching privately, I'm especially fond of life drawing and believe with encouragement that anyone can draw and paint. I can often be found wondering the countryside with my camera and sketchbook, I'm drawn to wild places, lakes and woods.
I've used most of the products we sell, so please feel free to ask me about anything.
