This well known form of art is a grinded down pigment that is tightly condensed, later mixed with water to create certain effects in a painting. Some even mix the pigment with a thicker liquid to create a more opaque tone of color. What makes watercolor unique is its transparency in application. The artist of a watercolor painting can keep apply different colors and shades until they have reached their desired look. Various techniques of this medium include washes, glazing, wet in wet, dry brush, lifting off, and dropping in color. Below, you can see multiple techniques put to use.
