Surfaces reflect colors
I might have exaggerated this slightly, but the white fur on a polar bear will reflect colors surrounding the bear. Most all surfaces will reflect surrounding colors. This is a small 5 inch by 8 inch watercolor I did for a demonstration in one of my many watercolor workshops. Painted on 140lb. Arches cold press. I hardly ever tape down my paper. It just lies on whatever surface as I am painting.
