Definitions for "Watercolour"
A paint made of pigments dissolved in water and binding material. Characterized by transparency.
Typically art works using thin washes of watercolour paint, the pigment is soluble in water. A very difficult medium where artists can combine translucent colour as well as minute detail.
Any paint that uses water as a medium. Paintings done with this medium are known as watercolors. An exception to this rule is water miscible oil paints, which employ water as their medium, but are actually oil paints.
