Watercolor paint is a popular and versatile medium known for its transparency and fluidity. It consists of pigments suspended in a water-soluble binder, usually gum arabic. Watercolor paints are typically applied to paper and are valued for their ability to create delicate washes and subtle color gradients. Unlike oil or acrylic paints, watercolors can be reactivated with water even after they dry, allowing artists to blend and adjust their work. This medium is often used for landscapes, abstract paintings, and illustrations.
