Welcome to dickblick
A range of synthetic brushes made by blending fibers of different thicknesses to achieve the most important qualities sought after by the watercolorist — strength, spring, and color holding capacity.
The round and one-stroke brushes have nickel-plated ferrules and short blue lacquered handles. The aquarelle brush has nickel-plated ferrules, solid acrylic handles, and angled flat ends.
The Designers' Round is a variant on the regular Round brush that is designed for highly detailed application. (Another name for this brush would be a "spotter"!) It is narrower, with less of a belly and lower color carrying capacity, and the hair is shorter for fine control.
A Rigger is a specialized Round brush for painting fine lines. It can also be used, with practice, for lettering. The original Rigger was a brush that was invented in the 19th century for painting the riggings on sailing ships. It is narrow in diameter, with very long hair.
Winsor & Newton's Cotman Round is a full bellied round brush with fibers of varying widths, so that it has both springiness and high color carrying capacity.
Shipping Note — Due to manufacturer distribution restrictions, Winsor & Newton products cannot be shipped to addresses outside of North America.

My Favorite Brush!
By Kathy the Experimenter
from Lexington, KY
Comments about Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Round Series 111:
I bought my first Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Rounds when I needed to supply brushes for a class I was teaching. I've been using them ever since. They are so durable, keeping their shape through a lot of use. They also are superb for controlling the line or wash. Cotman brushes are a solid deal, and I actually prefer them to more expensive brushes. They don't have to be babied! I definitely recommend them to my students.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best brushes for fine line painting
from Vieques, PR
I use this to paint fine detail on ceramic tiles and vessels. They hold up better than all the others I have tried in my long life. Glazes and under glazes are hard on brushes and these go the distance.

Got the size 8 round 111. After you wash it/ dry it, and shape it to a point, it will actually stiff up and keep it's original point and body. Never seen any of my cheap brushes do that. Just add a little bit of water to soften it up again. It has a nice spring and medium to soft feel when wet. I have a feeling this brush will last a long time. If it would hold a little bit more water, I would give it all 5 stars for perfection. I will try out the larger round to see if that meets my needs. Besides that, I like it. A really nice brush for the price.
Definitely would buy again

Came back for more
from Vancouver, BC, Canada
Bought the 000 and 0000 in the Evanston store while travelling in the area. Had never used the brand before. Back at home, I was using the 0000 brush and a fellow artist asked to borrow. We were both so impressed with the Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Round brushes that I ordered more sizes and duplicates of my original purchase.Even the fine brushes are not floppy and are easy to control. Like the short handle. These brushes are being used for watercolour and oil with excellent results. They are my favourites.

Comments about Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolor Aquarelle Series 777:
This brush is super for washes. It holds a substantial amount of liquid while it keeps it shape and edge. I paint fairly tight and I use this brush to qickly and accurately lay out washes. In addition the bevel edge on the handle is works well for scoring. I find this brush a necessity in my watercolor arsenal.
from Villanova PA
found my present one so useful, eventually wore it out...happy to have a new one
