Inexpensive or expensive brushes / Art suppliers
In quality and price, the best watercolor brushes can be those ranging from a sealed business package of up to five, hanging at the end of the driveway of your national hobby chain, to those benefiting from a royal seal, such as "By Command, to Her Majesty the Queen". (Queen Victoria commissioned Winsor & Newton to become her favorite size in the Round 7 Kolinsky Red Sable series.) The first choice could be used for a short time to clean a child's boots. in your locker room. The latter can be framed proudly on the wall of your studio. Between the two, you will find a wide choice of brushes usable by recognized brands. Some of these brands are: Winsor & Newton Series 7, Isabey, Rafael, Arches, Escoda, Pro Arte and others. The less important, but still quite usable ranges include: Winsor & Newton 666 Series, Princeton and Grumbacher. I recommend buying a good brand. Avoid these multiple packages; they will work so poorly in practice and sustainability that you will be very discouraged. Some of each brand are mentioned and I appreciate each brush. And yes, I bought cheapo brushes in the past … and I had to throw them away.
