While watercolor paint sets often include the color white, it is not really needed. The white paper allows white tinted colors to be made from the other paint colors. When white is needed for a touch-up such as the reflected light in an eye, the white watercolor paint isn't up to the job of covering up other colors. Learn some different ways to let the light come through.-
