Winsor & Newton Series 7 - The World's Finest Water Color Brush. More than any other tool, the brush is a direct and fluid extension of the artist’s hand, eye and expressive vision. It is with that principle in mind that Winsor & Newton has crafted fine artists’ brushes for over 150 years, earning a reputation for making the world’s finest from the very best raw materials. The standards of quality for this brush were set in 1866, when her majesty Queen Victoria gave orders that Winsor & Newton, holders of the Royal Warrant, be commanded to produce the very finest water color brushes in her favorite size the No. 7. The resulting brush known as the Series 7 and the standards of quality set in 1866 are the same today. There are three essential qualities that define the finest water color brush: Point, Snap & Spring and Flow Control. Since 1866, the handmade Series 7 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 brush than the Winsor & Newton Series 7.

Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes are prepared entirely by hand in our brush factory in England, in the same facility since 1946. Experience is the key which will turn an average brush maker into an expert Series 7 brush makers. In fact in the last 60 years the three people in charge of Series 7 have a combined 134 years’ experience!
Three essential qualities that define the finest watercolor brush:
Every Series 7 brush should come to a crisp point and maintain that point during use.
Pointing without color – swirl the brush in water, give the brush head a hard flick of the wrist.
Point when painting – drain excess color into palette and then twist brush head gently to get the perfect point.
Snap and Spring
The brush snaps back crisply into shape with the right degree of spring to allow the artist superior control with a degree of give and take between the brush and painting surface.
Flow Control – Speed and control of painting
The larger belly of the Series 7 brush hold more color than other sable brushes and this makes applying washes so much easier. Along with the color carry capacity the Series 7 comes with such a fine point too. The same fine line can be achieved with a size 10 as it would be with a size 0 as the reason for the larger size brush is when you want a reservoir of color.
The Series 7 range
The unique features of a Series 7 brush are its wider belly coupled with a long tapered point.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, this seller is sending fake-outs, factory rejects, or something similar.
The #2 brush arrived, crushed, in an envelope. The hairs were splayed, the ferrule was bent, the handle was scratched up, and the tube that holds the brush was just taped at the ends, instead of having the end caps they normally come with.
The hairs are the biggest problem, though.
Even after using Masters brush soap to condition the splayed hairs, the brush is useless. Winsor & Newton pride themselves on the brushes holding a sharp point, but the hairs of this knockoff brush want nothing to do with each other, splayed out in every direction, and refusing to hold paint.
I will be ordering Winsor & Newton brushes again, but not from this seller.
With all this said, I do have a couple smaller series 7 brushes that are fine - 0, 1, 2, 4 and 1/4 flat. But once you go above a 4 it's over. The 8 I bought from Amazon and the 10 I bought from Jerry's were both garbage and returned.
Do yourself a favor, get a da vinci. Their quality far exceeds series 7 but most importantly when you spend the money you will consistently get a great brush. Series 7 brushes of the modern era are just mass produced garbage, from a company resting on its laurels.
This is the second time I’ve ordered series 7 brushes cus they are supposed to be the best. First order #1 round was splayed all to hell. Not fixable.
Second order: all the sent were the tubes. WTF!!!! There weren’t even any caps where maaaaybe the brushes fell out the corner. Shipping bag was totally sealed by the way.
My recommendation order from an art supply company
Is this a good brush? Yes. But using this brush to paint miniature is like driving a Ferrari to work everyday - this brush is designed to paint watercolor and not acrylics. Constant exposure to acrylic paint (ie Citadel paint) would eat away the sable hair in no time. I even went the extra mile to buy proper brush care products such as the W&N brush cleaner solvent and Master brush cleaner soap but 1000 points of space marines later, the attached photo is the result.
Overall, W&N brushes are simply too expensive and soft for miniature painting. The Citadel layer brush that I bought months before I bought this one still holds its shape, but that's not the case for the W&N. If you're looking for a good brush to paint miniature, do not buy kolinsky sable brushes or else you'll yourself throwing money constantly for new brushes.
I'm an experienced model builder and I want to repeat a sentiment shared by most model builders; we spend maybe $40 on a tank model, another $40 on the tracks, $20 to $30 on photo-etch and other details.
Then we turn around and complain about spending $10 to $20 on a brush that we will probably use and keep for years. Guilty as charged for many years.
You will see a massive improvement in your skills when you invest in quality tools. You are paying for a high quality brush, not just some "artists" name with these proven brushes.
Keep your brushes clean, store them hanging up and they will serve you well.

This single brush has made me almost decide to throw away all my others. It really is that good, don't be fooled into thinking you can 'get by' using citadel brushes, this purchase will set you up for years to come and super charge your painting.
However this is purely based on you receiving a GOOD W+N S7 brush. My first size 0 arrived and it seemed to work ok, but after only an hour painting the tip went blunt and stray bristles started to pop out. So it went back to Amazon. Amazon were amazing and sent a replacement the very next day. Sadly this brush had a poor tip right out of the packaging and no amount of paint or Masters brush cleaner would keep a tip on the thing. I did try it on a miniature but it was terrible. So back to Amazon it went.
Amazon dropped the ball on this return and it took a week and a half to resolve a replacement (even though they received the return within 2 days). However Customer Services were amazing and sent me a replacement 24 hours after my moan.
The third brush is stunning. Possibly the best W+N S7 I have ever seen. A stunningly sharp tip with a voluptuous belly and a beautiful snap.
So buy these brushes...because they should be stunning. If yours is not return it until you receive a stunning brush. :)
This brush arrived with a plastic cover over the point, and was presented in a clear tube, but it has got to be the worst brush I have purchased, the hairs split in two as soon as it touches the paper, impossible to bring it to a point which makes it pretty useless as I use size 4 for detail.
I don't know how it got passed by W & N but as the packaging had not been tampered with the fault must be at their end.
This brush was expensive and unfortunately not fit for any purpose.
I am going to contact Amazon customer service to see whether they will exchange or refund.
I'll probably stick with these brushes, but in future I'd send them back if they don't have a good point upon unpackaging, rather than struggling along trying to keep a good tip.
The bristles were jammed under the protective cover, after very little use it fails to hold a point and forks very easily. The bristles bulge in the middle (as opposed to having a conical shape like my other series 7s) and like to take on far more paint than the tip can handle. My £0.50 synthetic brushes perform far far better.
Don't know if this is common or just bad luck but I'll be thinking twice about buying one of these again, having sworn by them in the past.
Now I’m no expert with either brushes or mini painting, but this brush has certainly opened my eyes to how top quality lays down the paint.
I know others have questioned the quality of the series 7, but I’m happy enough with mine. I found it easier to control the flow and the point allowed me to do smaller areas easier.
I’m one happy cookie.
Its a shame as Windsor & Newton are a good brand. I do have the "Pro" versions of these brushes which are much better, and don't cost that much either.
Stubbornly mediocre! Arrogantly average!
high detail work can be completed with even a size 1 or 2 brush so eliminates the need to own lots of different brushes.
These seem expensive per brush but the overall quality is worth it.
regular use with brush soap will keep these working in top condition for a long time.
I have sizes 000, 00, 0, 1, 2 & 3. and i am very happy with them
I use them all for Oil painting and love using them along side my Escoda brushes.
Highly recommended the don't shed hair and they hold their shape well even after may uses and washes (Even after Oil and Turpentine is used) and I am sure would be just as lovely for watercolorists too.
