Ideal for Watercolours and Oils (the latter usually preferred on the long handles). The natural characteristics of the Red Sable hair offer a good "belly", allowing a liquid holding capacity greater than, the Golden Synthetic for example.
This hair has a beautiful spring and upon retouching the paper, will flow and release water similiar to a fountain pen. For Oils, the Red Sable are a good choice if one can afford, and where a softness with a delicate spring is required.
The Series 77 Short Flats are also known as "brights" allow a much sturdier brush with a stronger "snap" creating sharper edges and control. They are also ideal for "blocking in", larger washes and impasto. Popular for windows, roof tops, nice large skies, architecture and so on.
