Introduction to Watercolour Painting

Paintings come in different categories, but watercolour might be the most iconic. The look achieved by using watercolour is unique. It’s a delicate style that needs to be carefully shaped. The paint seeps into the canvas or paper so that they become one, creating a unity that is rare among other paintings. It’s easy to look at watercolour art paintings and like them, but if you want to appreciate them, you need to take a look at this category of art painting on a deeper level.


Development of Watercolour Painting

Watercolour painting is one of the oldest types of painting that is still in use today. This is because of its simplicity. Other paints like Pastel and Oil, are created by combining the paint pigment with a binding solution. With watercolour paint, the binding solution is water. Watercolour techniques have been used since the days of ancient cave paintings. It’s important to note that as humans migrated across the globe, this technique of art painting took different forms. In Asia, there wasn’t a distinction between ink brush painting and watercolour, with black and brown pigments dominating. In Europe, the pieces created using watercolour tended to be more colourful. While the basics of watercolour painting haven’t changed much, there have been more and more synthetic pigments employed in style, allowing for more affordable access to every colour imaginable.

Watercolour Painting Technique

Anyone can paint using watercolours but it takes a skilled hand and sharp mind to create the sort of results achieved by the most famous watercolour artists. The medium isn’t forgiving, just a drop of water can rehydrate the paint and extract the pigment from the paper. This is good for making alterations, but it also means you have to be very careful if you don’t want to undo all the work you’ve done. One of the first things a someone new to watercolour painting needs to know is that you can achieve different results by using different amounts of water. The more water is used, the thinner and more delicate the art will be, while less water means darker and more permanent colours. Combining these different levels of water with pigment defines the most basic watercolour techniques. You can paint dry-on-dry, wet-on-wet, dry-on-wet, or wet-on-dry. Every combination is available, and the best watercolour artist needs to master each approach.

Some Famous Watercolour Artists

The German artists Albrecht Durer is most well known for his prints, but he also used watercolour to create some incredibly beautiful and delicate paintings. Paul Klee brought watercolour paintings into the world of modern art by using the medium to create abstract works that touched on modern themes like Cubism. Georgia O’Keefe combined modern abstraction with traditional natural scenes to create watercolour depictions of flowers that have become well known across the globe.
