Watercolour Painting For Sale on 1stDibs

Surely you’ll find the exact watercolour painting you’re seeking on 1stDibs — we’ve got a vast assortment for sale. In our selection of items, you can find Contemporary examples as well as a Modern version. If you’re looking for a watercolour painting from a specific time period, our collection is diverse and broad-ranging, and you’ll find at least one that dates back to the 18th Century while another version may have been produced as recently as the 21st Century. If you’re looking to add a watercolour painting to create new energy in an otherwise neutral space in your home, you can find a work on 1stDibs that features elements of gray, beige, brown, white and more. There have been many interesting watercolour painting examples over the years, but those made by George Wachsteter, David Barnett, Reginald K. Gee, Mino Maccari and Manuel Santelices are often thought to be among the most thought-provoking. These artworks were handmade with extraordinary care, with artists most often working in paint, watercolor and paper. A large watercolour painting can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller watercolour painting, measuring 0.1 high and 0.05 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a Watercolour Painting?

The price for a watercolour painting in our collection starts at $14 and tops out at $2,268,000 with the average selling for $982.

Finding the Right Drawings and Watercolour Paintings for You

Revitalize your interiors — introduce drawings and watercolor paintings to your home to evoke emotions, stir conversation and show off your personality and elevated taste.

Drawing is often considered one of the world’s oldest art forms, with historians pointing to cave art as evidence. In fact, a cave in South Africa, home to Stone Age–era artists, houses artwork that is believed to be around 73,000 years old. It has indeed been argued that cave walls were the canvases for early watercolorists as well as for landscape painters in general, who endeavor to depict and elevate natural scenery through their works of art.

The supplies and methods used by artists and illustrators to create drawings and paintings have evolved over the years, and so too have the intentions. Artists can use their drawing and painting talents to observe and capture a moment, to explore or communicate ideas and convey or evoke emotion. No matter if an artist is working in charcoal or in watercolor and has chosen to portray the marvels of the pure human form, to create realistic depictions of animals in their natural habitats or perhaps to forge a new path that references the long history of abstract visual art, adding a drawing or watercolor painting to your living room or dining room that speaks to you will in turn speak to your guests and conjure stimulating energy in your space.

When you introduce a new piece of art into a common area of your home — a figurative painting by Italian watercolorist Mino Maccari or a colorful still life, such as a detailed botanical work by Deborah Eddy — you’re bringing in textures that can add visual weight to your interior design. You’ll also be creating a much-needed focal point that can instantly guide an eye toward a designated space, particularly in a room that sees a lot of foot traffic.

When you’re shopping for new visual art, whether it’s for your apartment or weekend house, remember to choose something that resonates. It doesn’t always need to make you happy, but you should at least enjoy its energy. On 1stDibs, browse a wide-ranging collection of drawings and watercolor paintings and find out how to arrange wall art when you’re ready to hang your new works.
