Watercolor paintings

Aquarell is an art form that is distinguished by its transparency and lightness. This technique involves the use of watercolor paints, which are pigments dissolved in water, applied to a special paper that is dense and absorbent enough to handle the amount of water. Watercolor paintings are characterized by their ability to capture light and create a sense of lightness and ephemerality, making the technique particularly suitable for creating atmospheric effects such as fog, sky and reflections on water.

Aquarell with layers upon layers

Artists value watercolor for its quick-drying properties and the ability to create a range of tones by adjusting the amount of water. By working with layer upon layer, an artist can build color intensity and depth, even though each individual layer remains relatively transparent. This technique requires a certain degree of skill and control, as the fluid nature of watercolor paint means it can be difficult to correct if mistakes are made.

Modern watercolor paintings

Watercolors have been used throughout history, from fine calligraphic works to landscape painting and portraiture, and are still popular with artists today for their portability and the unique beauty they can create. Watercolor painting offers an immediacy and a sense of spontaneity that can be difficult to achieve with more opaque painting techniques, and its finished work can exude a sense of freshness and vibrancy that is deeply appealing.
