Watercolour art is painting¬† by mixing pigments with a binder which is often gum, and then applying it along with water to paper. The water then evaporates and the binder fixes the pigment to the paper. Watercolour was used a long time before the development in the 17oo’s of British watercolour tradition. In mediaeval times, artists illustrated on vellum pages to create hand-written books with coloured paintings in watercolour.
