river & colour

care for your painting

Watercolour paintings are quite delicate pieces of art compared to more robust objects like an oil painting. Here are some tips to make sure your River & Colour painting stays in a perfect condition for years to come.

Keep your painting out of direct sunlight so that the colours retain their vibrancy.

Watercolour paint is water soluble and can be easily damaged so avoid touching the surface of the painting where possible.

We recommend framing your watercolour painting as adhesive options such as blu tack or tape can leave an unsightly stain on the painting.

Ensure your painting is located in a cool, dry room.
