PAINTING - one of the oldest forms of fine art associated with transmission of visual images by applying paint on a solid or flexible basis, the creation of images using digital technology, as well as works of art created by such processes.

Brilliance, brightness, volume effect of images are reproduced by aquarelle, gouache, acrylic, oil paints etc.

In order to make it easier to navigate in the world of fine art, we will give you some information on the different types of paints.


Aquarelle (Fr. aquarelle – watery; Ital. acquarello) - painting technique using special watercolours, when dissolved in water forms a transparent thin slurry of pigment, and allows at the expense of this to create the effect of lightness, airiness and subtle color transitions. Aquarelle combines features of painting (wealth of tone, building form and space with color) and graphics (active role of paper in image processing, the lack of smear’s specific relief characteristic to the painting surface.)


Gouache (Fr. gouache, Italian. guazzo water-based paint, splash) – watercolor types, more dense and opaque than ordinary aquarelle.

Gouache can operate not only on paper but also on primed (not washable) canvas, on fabric, cardboard, plywood (veneer). Gouache is widely used in decorative painting for the various sketches. Often used for color sketches. Gouache is easy to operate and, importantly, allows to make corrections during the work process.


Acrylic - water-dispersed paints based on polyacrylates (mostly polymers of methyl, ethyl and butyl acrylate), and their copolymers. Used in painting and construction for interior and exterior use (work).

Acrylic paints can be diluted with water (dispersively), but after drying become resistant to water. Depending on the amount used while diluting water or use of other fillers (gels, pastes, putties, glues) finished acrylic painting can be like a aquarelle or oil picture or have its unique color, not achievable in other areas of fine arts.

Oil paints

Oil paints consist of dry pigments and drying oils. For example, can be used flax or poppy seed oil or walnut oil.

Most often oil paints are used on linen or cotton canvas or wood panel. To write with oil paints on canvas, wood, cardboard or any other basis, it is first applied to the soil to prevent the leakage of oil from the paints, to ensure a better grip of the paint layer to the surface of the canvas and give definite texture and color to the base.


Batik - hand painting on fabric using reserving trains.

The appropriate dye is applied on the fabric - silk, cotton, wool, synthetics. To obtain sharp boundaries at the junction of paints a special hardener called reserve (reserving composition, based on wax, gasoline, water-based - depending on the chosen technology, fabrics and colors.) is used.
