Why? This request occurred to me after watching online digital
painting tutorials from a couple of different sources. In them, the
artist chooses a particular color as their background (typically
white) and, rather than erasing their mistakes, simply switches to
the background color and paints over with it. I have seen several
comments on these videos (replicated across the sources) to the
effect that this swapping to background color rather than using the
eraser is a neat trick - mainly because it simplifies the workflow.
See for example:
at 1:55 where he says:
"To erase, I don't use the eraser. It's slow to switch tools. I prefer [to] use
the color picker and pick white color on the background. To draw again, I pick grey"
