What are the different mediums used in the paintings?
Mixed media combines more than one visual art medium. For instance, paint plus ink, or a collage using fiber or other materials.
Remember that tin of paint you got as a kid? Some people really knew what to do with them! Watercolors are usually transparent (just pigment and water) and appear almost luminous. Watercolor paintings usually are framed with a glass covering in order to protect the painting's surface.
Pastels are sticks of colors, pure color with a binding agent. There are "dry pastels" and "oil pastels" and the artists have to be diligent about making sure the art will last forever. Even though "pastel" as an adjective can mean light-colored or pale, pastel paintings are usually vibrant and rich. Pastel paintings usually are framed with a glass covering in order to protect the painting's surface.
Pigments are blended with various oils that include poppyseed oil to linseed oil. An artist may use several different oils, which will show up in different sheens in the finished work.
Acrylic paint is synthetic and water soluble — until it dries. Depending on how much the artist dilutes it, the painting might resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or it may be in a class of its own.
