About Watercolor paintings

Styles of Watercolor Painting Watercolor painting or aquarelle dates back to the ancient paintings on the cave walls of paleolithic Europe and was the preferred method for coloring manuscripts from Ancient Egypt to Medieval France. It became a recognized art form in the 15th and 16th centuries, first with Dürer himself and then with the Dürer Renaissance. Botanical, realistic watercolor paintings have long been an enormously popular expression of the art form and were influential in the formation of the English School. In 18th-century England, watercolor painting was considered a demonstration of a good education. More modern watercolor painting styles include abstract and Impressionist paintings, and the form also played a considerable role in the rise of contemporary realism. Subjects in Watercolor Painting Since its earliest arrival as a recognized art form, watercolor paintings of natural themes such as flowers, animals, trees, and birds have been immensely popular. In Baroque and Renaissance paintings, watercolors were often used for botanical illustrations and scientific or academic publications. Due to its transparency and glorious color, aquarelle is a medium that lends itself incredibly well to landscapes and the natural world. Sunset watercolor paintings can capture the golden sun’s rich fading glow, while seascapes and ocean watercolor paintings show shifting colors and reflections on the water perfectly. Still lifes in watercolor highlight the soft coloring of fruit, while landscape still lifes emphasize light and shadow in unique and delicate ways. Materials Used in Watercolor Paintings Aquarelle paint includes four main ingredients: pigment for color, a binding agent, additives such as honey to add thickness, and water as a thinner. Small watercolor paintings on paper are often bright, colorful pieces that use the water in the paint to create a classic drip effect. However, although these washed-out paper aquarelles are the most famous form of the medium, they aren’t the only way of working with watercolors. Watercolor and ink paintings add water-soluble ink to the paint to create a wash effect often used in Asian brush, scroll, or woodcut painting. In Chinese, Japanese, and Korean painting, monochrome aquarelle has often been the dominant form, creating black and white watercolor paintings using inkstick and other pigments. Famous Artists of Acrylic Paintings There are famous watercolor paintings by Van Gogh, Cezanne, Van Dyck, and John Singer Sargent. J.M.W. Turner is one of the most important artists in the history of aquarelle and is often credited with establishing watercolor as a serious art form, for previously, the art establishment in Europe was primarily concerned with oil paintings and did not believe that the same technique and skill could be applied to watercolor paintings. Watercolor has a prominent place in contemporary art too. Artists like Kandinsky, Edward Hopper, and Georgia O’Keefe all created beautiful watercolor paintings, and it remains an important medium today.
