Received my order of brushes from Rosemary & Company. I find their Series 323 the closest to Winsor & Newton Series 7 Miniature. They have very sharp points and keep their points nicely. However, they do not keep their shape as you paint. When I make a stroke the brush "bends" slightly and then stays in that shape (similar to synthetic watercolor brushes I have used in the past). It does not spring back (like W&N Series 7). I will keep using the brushes to see if they improve with use, but as is, it is kind of annoying to have to keep reshaping the point between strokes.
I still can't find a brush I consider comparable to the W&N Series 7 brushes. I'll keep trying.
