Painting with translucent colours diluted in water using gum arabic, requiring a prompt and sure execution because of the fast drying colours. The most common support is usually paper or silk, especially in the Far East. Watercolour painting turns into a common painting method in the 18th century in England and spreads during the 19th century. The artist currently exhibits her work in a permanent exhibition at Genoa art gallery, as well as in her atelier "San Lorenzo al Ducale".


Like water painting, acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint and, contrary to oil painting, the surface of the finished painting appears quite homogeneous. However, pigments are not bound by water, but by synthetic resins.
