However, watercolor paintings can also be created on other mediums like wood, leather, plastic and canvas, if the surface is properly prepared.
Watercolor painting was quite common in ancient times. But, it is during the Renaissance period that many artists started using watercolor medium, and helped it to grow as an art form.
An Excellent Way of Expressing Yourself
