The transparent nature of watercolor allows the artist to create paintings that glow as the white of the paper shines through the paint. And, there is something magical that happens when paint colors are allowed to mix on the paper. The nature of watercolor opens up many possibilities. Its quick drying time allows it to be very practical.
21st century paint companies have created great pigments that enable the artist to add rich darks and opaque passages to their work. Additionally, the availability of iridescent and metallic paints has created a wide range of possibilities.
