Transcript of INTRO to watercolor


Watercolors are transparent, although there is a slight opacity to some of them.

White (opaque) paint is never used in traditional (known as ‘pure’) watercolour painting. To lighten colours add more water, for white just leave the paper unpainted.
Watercolor paints come in ‘Pans’ (hard blocks) or ‘Tubes’. There is little difference in the quality, it is mainly the consistency that varies which does affect the application.
Watercolors dry up to 50% lighter after application, this needs to be allowed for when mixing colors.
During the 15th century, printmaker Albrecht Durer developed methods that improved the paints’ appearance. Once artists realized its potential, they explored techniques that enhanced the luminous, transparent effects of the colors.
Watercolor, Watercolour,

Watercolor paint is a mix of pigment (natural or synthetic) and gum Arabic, a natural ‘glue’ made from the sap of the Acacia tree.
