White Watercolor Painting For Sale on 1stDibs

On 1stDibs, you can find the most appropriate white watercolor painting for your needs in our varied inventory. Find Modern versions now, or shop for Modern creations for a more modern example of these cherished works. You’re likely to find the perfect white watercolor painting among the distinctive items we have available, which includes versions made as long ago as the 18th Century as well as those made as recently as the 21st Century. When looking for the right white watercolor painting for your space, you can search on 1stDibs by color — popular works were created in bold and neutral palettes with elements of white, gray, black and brown. Finding an appealing white watercolor painting — no matter the origin — is easy, but Renato Garza Cervera, Michela De Vito, Mila Akopova, Katherine Filice and Mino Maccari each produced popular versions that are worth a look. Artworks like these — often created in paper, paint and ink — can elevate any room of your home. A large white watercolor painting can prove too dominant for some spaces — a smaller white watercolor painting, measuring 1.97 high and 0.1 wide, may better suit your needs.

How Much is a White Watercolor Painting?

A white watercolor painting can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price for items in our inventory is $853, while the lowest priced sells for $60 and the highest can go for as much as $800,000.

Finding the Right Drawings and Watercolor 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.
