Behind Watercolor Techniques
Watercolors are used in which pigments suspended in a gum-Arabic solution are applied to a surface with the use of brush and water. Water is used as a medium for pointing to bind the pigments. It started out since ancient times. Watercolor techniques have been improved throughout these past few years.

Watercolor Mixing Colors
Watercolor out of the tube or the pan is at its full paintable strength. Seldom will it be used in that manner except when the design calls for it. However, the use of full strength color is by large discouraged due to bronzing when watercolor applied to the paper dries. Diluting and mixing color pigments with water changes its values, depth, and hue. When applying watercolor though, an important thing to remember is that the color will tend to be lighter when the color dries. If you want stronger color, you can make adjustments by applying slightly stronger hues before application or you can dab some more color to the object when the paint is already dry.

Watercolor The Basics
Whether natural artist or not, there are always rules to follow first. Mastery of the rules allows us to break it with wonderful results but that will come later. It all starts with the basics.
