Watercolour (also called aquarelle) is a painting method where paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution.
Watercolour paint consists of four main properties - watercolour pigment, gum arabic (binder to hold the pigment), honey and preservatives.
The paints are diluted using water and the tonal values will vary from dark to light depending on the water mixed with the paint.
Watercolours are known for their transparency and appear more vivid than acrylics or oils because the pigments in watercolours are in a purer form.
It also comes in handy for Plein-air artists who love painting outdoors.
Watercolour works well with other mediums like coloured pencils and inks to create mixed media composition.
Watercolours are heavily water-based, as soon as two set colours touch, they begin to bleed into each other, which makes the blending process easy.
It also gives a translucent finish.
