Art Encyclopedia - Vehicle

Art information > Art Encyclopedia > V > Vehicle

In art, the vehicle is the liquid in which the pigment is suspended during the painting process. It is the liquid component part; it is called the vehicle because it carries the pigment. In watercolour the vehicle is water. The word can be applied to either the medium or the diluent, or to a mixture of both; thus the vehicle of oil painting might be either linseed oil, or turpentine, or both together. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
