Watercolor paintings are an exquisite fusion of color pigment harmoniously set in a water-soluble binder. This binder, often transparent, could be an amalgamation of elements like glues, gum, or glycerine. To enhance the vibrancy of the pigment, a sprinkle of brighteners, usually transparent crystals, is melded into the mix. The substrates that readily embrace watercolors range from bark papers, wood, and watercolor canvas to fabrics and even plastics. Notably, watercolor papers predominantly comprise cotton, either entirely or in part.
The unique selling proposition of watercolor paint lies in its transparent quality. This translucency is the heart and soul of emotive effects paintings, allowing the artist to evoke deep-seated emotions and memories. The legacy of watercolor arts isn’t a recent phenomenon. Its roots are ancient, tracing back to the evocative cave paintings from the stone age.
Rios Art Gallery curates a diverse collection of original watercolor artworks. The gallery showcases a spectrum from wooden landscapes and sceneries featuring bridges to delicate flower artwork, each narrating a unique tale.
