How do you tell the difference between a Watercolour and a print?
A water color will be on different paper than a print and have more of a flat finish to it unless the artist sprayed a fixitive on it. Turning it at an angle in the light might show very light brush work. Also a water color will usually be in a frame with glass or plexi to protect it.
