Aquarelle means water. In these paints, the colors are made of pigments mixed in water based liquid. Water color painting had bloomed in England, somewhere in eighteenth century. Basically water colors history goes as far as cave men. The cave men were actually the first people who used colors that were water based to paint their ritual paintings in caves. They used their hands and fingers to paint different animals on cave walls. The ancient Egyptians also used water based paints to tell their stories. They painted stories of power, drought, and blessings on their walls. The Egyptians also painted on paper that was made of papyrus with water based colors. The Chinese and Japanese also used water colors for their works. These artists worked on fabric and used silk as their work surface to paint literature and calligraphy. Chinese calligraphy is renowned throughout the world and many Chinese artists still use water based inks. After that, from China the tradition was taken to western world. The Indians and Persians used water based paints in their works of decoration, and the Muslims used them to show their religious history. Paper, off course, played its role in flourishing of our beloved water colors. We can give the credit to Chinese. Chinese were very good at creating paper. They had handmade papers of best qualities. In the eighth century, the Arabs came to know their ways of making papers. Europeans imported paper for a long time until they managed to open their own mill in Italy. In early ages paper was considered a great luxury as it was very expensive. This was one of the major reasons why the water color paintings did not flourish for a long time. When paper became available to people the great artists like Leonardo de Vinci started using it for their drawings. Albrecht Durer, a German artist, is known to be the first master of water colors. Among his many paintings, the Owl is worth seeing and worth studying. The depth of the eyes and the softness of the bird are very evident. Water color is a type of medium that is very unpredictable. A water colorist, in most of the cases and techniques has to be fast. This comes with time and experience. The more you paint, the more you learn. Trial and error does count. In water color all the colors are water based. Be it water color tubes or cakes. It depends on individual artist what he/she is comfortable with; otherwise, the pan and the tube colors work the same. There isn't much difference as far as you are using good quality brands. For a beginner it is better to use affordable beginner's paints. Usually it is mentioned on the box as 'Beginners Quality.'

I guess this line will open the doors of hope for you. And I’m not just bragging. It sure is one of the most difficult mediums to paint with and that was exactly the challenge I accepted when I started my Arts education. I thought, how difficult can it really be? I have realized over the time that everything in this world is difficult only until you learn it. If you try, you do get a grasp of it sooner or later. One very important thing is that you find someone who can teach you, and can teach you well. Here I hope I will be able to transfer as much knowledge as I can in a possibly detailed manner. If you were in a class, I would be open to questions. But that is not the case in our situation, so I want to make sure that by the time you finish this book, you won’t have any questions left. I am keeping the struggles in my mind, that I made just to learn this technique and how I wished I could get one person or a single book that could be my fairy god mother and teach me everything I needed to know in a wave of a wand. That didn’t happen, of course. But I did learn and now that I know, I want to transfer my knowledge to you. Why is water color one of the difficult materials? Everybody has their own reasons; the only reason that I am going to tell you is that they are a bit hard to control. Don’t worry! Don’t be taken aback. I’m here to teach you. This book contains activities by which you will learn to control your color, brush strokes, and many other things.
