About watercolour

Watercolor paintings were discovered in cave paintings of Paleolithic Europe, and have been used to illustrate ancient manuscripts. Painting with watercolors may be easy to do, however, watercolors are not a forgiving medium. Watercolor wash techniques, such as flat, graded and blended washes, when painting with watercolors is typically used by the artists.  India, Ethiopia, and other countries have long watercolor painting traditions.

Watercolur, is pigment ground in gum, usually gum arabic, and applied with brush and water to a painting surface, usually paper; the term also denotes a work of art executed in this medium. The pigment is ordinarily transparent but can be made opaque by mixing with a whiting and in this form is known as body colour, or gouache; it can also be mixed with casein, a phosphoprotein of milk.

Watercolor compares in range and variety with any other painting method. Transparent watercolor allows for a freshness and luminosity in its washes and for a deft calligraphic brushwork that makes it a most alluring medium. There is one basic difference between transparent watercolour and all other heavy painting mediums--its transparency. The oil painter can paint one opaque colour over another until he has achieved his desired result. The whites are created with opaque white. The watercolourist's approach is the opposite. In essence, instead of building up he leaves out. The white paper creates the whites. The darkest accents may be placed on the paper with the pigment as it comes out of the tube or with very little water mixed with it. Otherwise the colours are diluted with water. The more water in the wash, the more the paper affects the colours; for example, vermilion,a warm red, will gradually turn into a cool pink as it is thinned with more water.

You are welcome to come, stand and stare……..

Studio Palazzo an Art Gallery's primarily would like even people who have never entered an art gallery in their lives to come in and look. You don't have to understand art. You don't go into a garden of flowers and understand them. You just look and admire the colours of God's creation. In the same way, the artist is the creator in this case. Just walk in, look and let the colours give you joy.

Girish Kulkarni

There are examples of toy making by professional contemporary artists, but are rare, to be in an art gallery space for presentation. Naturally Girish Kulkarni started bringing the elements of interest to children in his art practice, ever since he became a father. Fantasies are at play.
