Second Layer

Logistically, each layer involves the same process as the first; an additional layer of masking followed by a new layer of watercolor. With each layer, the image will become more defined and darker. Those are a given. Otherwise there is flexibility and leaves room for variation. In this case, the second layer I blasted with intense color to counter the pastel underlay, which should create a smooth color blend. I also plan to tone the intensity down dramatically in the next layer with a more monochrome palette, so the intensity will take a big hit. If I kept the intensity low here, the final palette would probably be flatter than I want.
