Watercolor - (French Aquarelle, from the Latin. Aqua - water) - «water paint». A distinctive feature of watercolor paints is an extremely thin rubbing of the pigment and a large percentage of adhesives as a binder.
Watercolor is also called the technique of painting with watercolors. The most important property of watercolor painting is the transparency and softness of the thinnest paint layer. White as an excessively dense paint in this technique is not used at all (they are replaced by the white color of paper, which is translucent through the painting). The possibilities of this technique are quite wide, but the difficulties are considerable.
