why when you draw a small black circle on a white sheet, it looks smaller than when you draw an equal white circle on a black sheet?

Because light reflects off the "colour" (because black and white are treated as colour here) of an image to the eye, black reflects almost no light and white reflects [all] light – the contrast of the two quantities of reflection in the background makes the one appear larger than the other.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy is spent
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one;
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colours from our sight
Red is grey is yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion

Eyesight is not an exact science. Our eyes are easily deceived - which is just as well or you would not be able to read this.
