Rigger, Series 303 — A "Rigger" is the name originally given to brushes that were used for painting the rigging on ships in seascape paintings. Series 303 is a short handle pointed round brush with long springy fiber.
Long Handle Round, Series 404 — The Series 404 Round is an oil painter's version of the original Series 101 Round, with a long lacquered handle. It's a style traditionally used by oil painters who stand to paint using an easel.
Flat Wash — With thicker hair to hold more water-based color, and a shorter handle, the Flat Wash is a version of the square wash for creating watercolor wash effects.
Note — Brush sizes are not standardized. The length and width of a brush of a given shape and size varies considerably by manufacturer. Since fine art brushes are handmade, expect some variation even among brushes from a given manufacturer.
