Watercolor Originals capture movement -- whether it’s the swimmer in mid-stroke or the snowboarder getting some air. Layers of water-based paints create a translucent fluidity that you simply cannot copy in any other type of art. The pigments are applied to a sturdy watercolor paper made to hold the paint. It takes a skillful artist to master watercolor, but the luminous glow from the white of the paper reflected through the paint makes it worth the work. Include glass or Plexiglass™ with your frame to protect your watercolor original.
