RE: White watercolor

When I teach watercolors I remove the white paint because I tell the kids, "what you don't put down on the paper is just as important as what you do" considering the negative space is a very important technique in painting with watercolor.

Long ago, I used the almost empty watercolor pans at my school and had the kids mix a dark neutral color with whatever colors were left. We used that leftover color mix for our Asian paintings and they turned out quite nicely. It was a great way to not throw away the last little bits in those watercolor pans.

I just finished a Sumi-e project with my 5th graders using only black watercolor paint. I didn't have the ink - so we improvised. It worked out nicely. My students even wrote Haiku poems to go along with their paintings. :) Breanne

Hi Linda, I might be jumping in late but my prang oval-8's don't have a white in them. they have a black which i pop out and throw away. on a new note i just bought liquid water colors and like them but am having trouble using them in a group of 15 or more students. what do others do? thanks carol
