Watercolour technique

If you like to support the independent art community, there’s no better way than to proudly display their artworks across your home, being a great conversation starter when friends and family inevitably ask, “Who painted this?”. Watercolour painting has long been treasured by the art community and fans alike as a paint medium which is best for capturing fine, intricate detail of a variety of subjects, whether it be of people, nature, or sporting events.

The thin wash and transparent colour effects of painting by water colour is made possible by adding pigments mixed with water, which gives artists plenty of scope to work with when it comes to how they want their finished painting to look in terms of overall textural effect.

Many artists find joy in some of the unexpected creative results of painting in watercolour, with the ease in colour mixing and application also making it an extremely transportable paint medium and is why you will often see many watercolour artists sketching outdoors in plain sight. 

Take a closer look at our watercolour paintings available below, and find you next favourite piece of inspiring artwork.

History of watercolours

When thinking of some of the more famous watercolour paintings, and while there are plenty to choose from, it’s difficult not to think of either Vincent van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’, Claude Monet’s ‘San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk’, or any number of J.M.W. Turner paintings.  

In the period encompassing the Stone Age, we begin to see a basic form of watercolour painting emerge where created on the walls of caves, making this genre of art as old a civilisation itself.

Using paint pigments suspended in water, watercolour paintings have dominated Asian art for centuries and yet only became a popular artistic medium in the western world as late as the 18th century, where it was largely confined to preparatory sketches. 

Now, artists from around the world choose to create their pieces using this versatile medium thanks to the various colour tones and varied atmospheric effects that can be achieved by staining wet canvas or paper with varying amounts of colour pigments to achieve the effect they have been seeking.
