Watercolors are the most challenging media to work with. I like to do my watercolors in layers like an acrylic to create the details found in life as opposed to the usual free flowing impressionistic style other artists use.
Pastels are the same pigments used in oil painting only in a drier chalk form. I prefer to use pastel pencils over the stick but use both at times to attain the life like quality I want in my subjects when doing portrait work.
Acrylics are water based paints which can be used in a variety of painting styles. Some artists like to thin and use them like they do watercolors in a free impressionistic style while others work with them in a tighter layering technique like they would use oil paints. Most acrylic art work is painted on canvas and framed with a picture varnish applied over it like an oil painting instead of mats and glass like watercolors and pastels.
