    Unwanted white on my liquid gouache

    I've already read a post on this, seem its been deleted or, whatever.
    So here is my problem, I work in a very simple but efficient way. I do sketches with strokes of a classical 2B pencil, then fuse the appropriate sketch layer with his paint layer before applying flats with a circular (instead of camel-haired) liquid gouache (the pencil becomes then an oily pencil, wich blend nicely with the gouache). Wich works perfectly for me.
    The feel of a real oil and rich color with the absence of traits of the medium is exaclty what I'm looking for (tell me of other ways btw if you know of some).
    BUT, I get a white colour, like if water was drooling from the paint, when all I do is pressing smoothly the stylus on the pad to paint on an empty/unpainted area, to smoothly make a gradient.

    I'm asking if someone could tell HOW to remove that white from my liquid gouache, hooo I'd be grateful!

    Lol you're welcome, this problem is quite common. I'm surprised no one has made it a sticky.
