Short handle brushes are generally best for watercolor as the painting is probably positioned more horizontally than upright and the artist will be closer to the work. Though there are a wide variety of filaments and wide ranging quality the best brush for watercolor is usually made of Kolinsky Sable due to the ability of this hair to hold a large amount of paint. Plaza Artist Materials has many options of great watercolor brushes.
