Watercolor and acrylic Automatic translate
Familiar to many since childhood, watercolor is very diverse, if you look at it from a professional point of view. It can be in tubes, sticks or jars. Still recommends using tubes, as they can prevent the paint from drying out (although it should be noted that the paint in sticks is sold dry).

Watercolor is a water-soluble paint, but it can only be painted if it is diluted with water - this is the main difference from tempera and gouache. This circumstance completely excludes body smears. With the help of glazings, which are in the arsenal of each artist, you can create amazing creations, but work with watercolor paints not as simple as it might seem at first glance. In addition to chalking paints (in other words, their fading when dried), paint spreading, laborious and long selection of the desired color and deformation of the paper should be added to a number of difficulties. But the artist who can overcome all these difficulties can no doubt be considered extremely talented.
Acrylic is a new-fangled invention and boasts a fairly wide range of uses. The main advantage of acrylic is its unique ability to produce and work on almost any surface. It can be cardboard, paper, canvas, glass or wood, and even such “exotic” surfaces for the artist as metal and ceramics.
In order to remove dried paint, a special solvent is necessary, and fresh paint is diluted with water. In this regard, the acrylic is very close to the tempera in the technique of work, you can work with it both in a very diluted form and in a thickened state. It should be understood that acrylic dries very quickly, so you should also think about applying another smear.
