Description

How do you use white watercolor paint? It's a question I've had over and over throughout the years, and the answer can vary depending on the end-use. Watercolor purists say white is taboo and, like blacks and browns, should not be used. To me, limiting my options is no fun and painting in watercolor, for me, is all about fun! Painting on tinted paper or painting white on black is just one use. For me, I use white watercolor paint as an underpainting or primer to paint over and get some terrific effects. I also use white watercolor paint and gouache for highlight accents on finished work. But, my favorite use for white is to make pastel colors. Find out more, here!
