Finely ground pigment used with a water soluble binding agent, usually gum Arabic, is characterized by a beautiful transparency. Mainly used on an absorbent watercolor paper, this fast drying form of painting is one of the many reasons I now choose to color my hair. When I say “fast drying” believe me – it is FAST. Although it has driven me crazy, I can honestly say that through the years I have had more fun with this medium than any other.
My children's character, Rachael Vega®, and her many friends, were all created with the wonderful use of Watercolors.
