Other types of paint require the addition of white pigment to lighten colors, but with watercolors you just add more water to lighten the shade. Water increases the paint's transparency and allows the white of the paper to show through. The more water you use the lighter your color will be. If you haven't used watercolors before, practice painting gradients on a scrap of paper before beginning your painting.
