Quite possibly the oldest medium, watercolour paintings have been created as far back as Ancient Egypt and Middle Ages Europe and became fully integrated as part of the art world during the Renaissance Period (1400s-1600s).

The paint is created by combining pigments with a water-based solution and allows the artist to achieve spectacular results and display awe-inspiring techniques. Through the use of a dryer or wetter paint, light sources can be produced, pigments can be blended together to create shifting colours and salt applied to create texture.

It is common for artists who work with watercolours to utilise more than a brush in their process, often using sponges and paper towels to apply or lift colours, creating gradual layers and textures. Watercolour paintings are typically done on specialised watercolour paper.
