Aquarelle, Zeichnungen

Als Aquarell bezeichnet man ein mit nicht-deckenden Wasserfarben angefertigtes Bild. Die Aquarellfarben enthalten folgende Bestandteile: sehr feine Pigmente, wasserlösliche Bindemittel wie Gummi arabicum oder Dextrinen, sowie Netz- und Feuchthaltemitteln. Nur mit Wasser verdünnt werden diese lasierenden Farben mit einem Pinsel auf Papier, Pergament oder andere Materialien aufgetragen. Durch die Aquarellfarben hindurch schimmert im Gegensatz zu Gouache und Tempera der Malgrund. Durch das übereinander malen verschiedener transparenter Farbschichten entstehen Farbmischungen, wo der Papiergrund ausgespart wird entsteht Weiß. Im anglophilen Sprachraum wird das Aquarell als watercolor bezeichnet.

Zeichnungen sind eher einfarbige, mit Bleistift, Kohle, oder Tusche angefertigte Arbeiten. Besonders Altmeister-Zeichnungen sind hier von Interesse. Hierbei handelt es sich oft um Vorstudien zu einem Gemälde oder einer Skulptur. Sehr gesuchte Sammelobjekte sind solche Skizzen aus der Renaissance- und Barockzeit.
