The watercolor is a painting technique that is drawn on cardboard or paper with colors dissolved in water. It is composed of pigments bonded with honey or gum arabic.

Watercolor is usually painted on paper and this should be thicker or thinner according to the size of the work to be painted. There are also different textures and the white background or that is slightly painted because the lights of the paint are the areas that do not have paint and that is where the white background is seen.

The textures can be pressed hot with the smooth surface, cold-pressed with a semi-rough texture, rough paper with a rough texture and enough.

To paint watercolors, some important extra materials such as brushes, rags, water wells, and mixtures are needed, not forgetting the most important of these are the paints. There are many kinds and quality brands such as Rembrandt tube watercolor paints, in beautiful and durable colors.

Watercolor painting requires the paper to be tensioned to prevent wrinkles when it gets wet because when the paper gets wet it expands.

First cut the paper to the desired extent with scissors or cutter. Then with a sponge soaked in water, the paper is wetted, placed on a board, fastened well with adhesive tape or with staples and so when it dries it can not return to its initial size because it is attached.

When it gets wet again with watercolors it does not expand again and so it will not wrinkle. You should always paint starting with the darkest parts of the watercolor and the lighter parts are painted around and thus cover the things that need to be kept white.
