Usage of watercolors is an old and famous art method which is considered both, a painting and a medium. Watercolors are made of color pigments mixed in water-soluble agents and are simply prepared for use by mixing the paint which is available in both forms - as cakes and tubes - with water, and varying the amount of pigment to get different tones and shades. Originally, animal glues were used as a binder for this purpose, but now acacia gum is most commonly used. The most striking feature of water-colors is their transparency which gives a fresh look to the painting! Different techniques are used to create watercolor paintings which include different types of washes, dabbing, dry brushing, and others.
