What is watercolor?

A term that refers to both the resulting artwork and the medium. It is a method of painting where the paints used are made of pigments that are suspended in water soluble "vehicle". Watercolors appear luminous and are transparent because the pigments used are laid down in pure form and few fillers obscure pigment colors. By adding Chinese white, watercolor can be made to look opaque.
