SHORT INFO. & HISTORY
Watercolour is a popular painting method to produces beautiful artworks.
Watercolor paintings are very ancient, probably originating from Europe's Paleolithic Age. Its history as an artistic medium, on the other hand, stretches back to the Renaissance, almost at 15th century. Albrecht Dürer, a Northern German Renaissance painter known for his stunning watercolors of flowers, animals, and landscapes, is widely regarded as one of the founding fathers of watercolor painting. Hans Bol founded an influential watercolor painting school in Germany during the Dürer Renaissance.

Watercolour paints are made up of four major ingredients such as glycerin, bovine bile, honey, and preservatives to vary the viscosity, concealing power, stability, or colour of the pigment carrier mixture; and evaporating water as a solvent used to reduce thickness of the paint before to application.
Watercolours are made up of pigments and binders that are water soluble. Watercolours can be used by artists to produce one-of-a-kind paintings that creatively express your imagination. One of the most appealing features of watercolour is the ability to achieve transparency and shine in the painting by just adding layers.
Any painting media that employs water as a solvent and may be applied with a brush,pen,or spray is referred to as "aqueous medium." Most inks, watercolours, tempera, casein, gouache, and contemporary acrylics fall under this category.

SURFACE OR MEDIA
Watercolour paper is the most common and traditional carrier medium (the surface on which the paint is applied) for watercolours. Papyrus, bark, plastic, parchment, leather, fabric, wood, and watercolour canvas (coated with gesso specially developed for watercolours) are some of the other supportive mediums for watercolour paintings.
MORE ABOUT WATERCOLOR PAINTING
Tube and pan watercolours are the two types of commercial watercolours available today. Because they are already blended with specific water elements, most paints offered now come in typical, collapsible metal tubes and have a viscosity comparable to toothpaste. This paste must be diluted with water before use. Pan paint comes in two sizes: entire pans and half pans.
