  1. I am putting together my water color supplies based on your list. Since I paint the majority of the time in oil, water colors are new to me. I am on the Jerry’s website and I am not finding the “Escoda Perla” Are those Kolinsky?
    and the liner brush No 6?

    If you could, please be more specific as the brushes come round, flat, liner…a tad confusing as to what to buy.

    For the paints I have them in tubes. These are what he uses, correct?
