Starting to Work with Aquarelle Paints.

If you like fine and fragile pictures, you will definitely be enchanted by the aquarelle painting. Watercolour paintings have an inimitable charm, softness and beauty when done correctly.

Quality aquarelle paints contain only the best pigments and a binder that holds the pigment together. It is usually gum arabic; honey is often added to the mixture. Absolutely opaque paint in aquarelle is usually only black and white. The magic of aquarelle is precisely that the colours are soft and fine coatings of paints are applied to the paper.

Ready-Made Completed Set of Aquarelle Paints

If you buy a ready-made set of paints, very often it includes a palette, sometimes a brush. The aquarelle set in a wooden box looks beautiful and luxurious. If you have someone in your area who likes to paint, it will surely please them as a gift.

For a start, you don't have to buy a wide range of colours; you can do with a set of 10 or 12 colours of a similar composition, as we know from classic watercolours. I.e.: two yellow, two red, two blue, two green, ochre, some shades of brown and optionally purple and black. You don't really need white. In aquarelle, the areas that are supposed to remain white are not painted at all (they are represented by the white colour of the paper).

How to Work with Aquarelle Paints

Artistic aquarelle paints tend to be very rich and concentrated. In the dry state, they look completely different than they will look on paper. It is therefore useful to make a colour sampler. It is handy to paint it on the same type of sturdy paper that you will then use for the actual watercolour painting. You have an immediate idea of what the individual shades will look like in real life. In order to work with aquarelle paints easily, it is good to use a watercolour sturdy paper and suitable brushes.

Some people like to paint freely, i.e. without pre-drawing; some people prefer painting with preparation. The basic ways of working are the same in both cases: When painting onto wet surface, the colours run and blur, when painting onto a dry surface dry, they stick to where you put them with a brush. You can also combine aquarelle paints with other techniques.
