White paper is a beautiful thing.

It has a glow to it that white paint doesn’t seem to have.

Plus it looks more natural in a painting.

One important aspect of watercolor is that you save your whites so you can retain this glow.

That means if you want white, you either carefully paint around that white area or you protect it with masking fluid while you paint.
