Most WMS servers support the option of establishing a solid-colored or transparent “background” for the “hollow” areas of the maps. In many cases, the default value for this color is white, but you can change it to any other color through the options included in the “Background color” section when creating or editing WMS user maps

You can even set this color as Transparent which, combined with the possibility of bringing the Background Map to front, will allow you to overlay maps with void areas to the geometries in your drawing or map

From the videos above, you can learn how to set the background color of WMS maps to its “Default” color, any custom Solid Color or as Transparent. Please, have a look to the videos
