My treasure watercolors of my belle France !!!, Part 4

The Aquarelles or Watercolor is a water color on paper., so they tell me,,, In French, we distinguish watercolor, transparent, from gouache, of identical composition, but opaque. The binder that attaches the pigments to the support fibers is almost always gum arabic. Watercolor or gouache colors consist of pigments, a water-soluble binder and additives to aid in application and storage. Watercolors can only be exhibited in suitable conditions, low light and protected by glass. Which is how I keep them for many years already,

I have many so will show you more on this post ,nice memories of many of these places indeed that need to be in my blog, Hope you enjoy this wonderful  aquarelles  or  watercolors  shots of wonderful monuments of my belle France as I.
