You can see how the paint behaves when painted on a wet surface, how it disperses, how it behaves when there is a black line behind it (to check for transparency or opacity).
You can see it also as a mass tone (without any paint) and can see how it disperses on the paper when adding paint to a bit of wet area. These swatches are designed by a very knowledgeable you tube artist sade from "sadie saves the day" check her video making all the tests.
