First step: on three different papers, neutral colors—paint and lift, paint and lift, paint and lift.
Then: apply transparent color on one paper, wipe with paper towel, veil with white paint diluted with medium.
Next: apply glaze to second paper, letting brush stroke texture show and creating some scribbles with the brush end; dry-brush a color over that and then obliterate some of the depth with opaque white.
After that: apply color to third paper, let dry till tacky, paint over, lift; paint a shape and veil partially with diluted white, lift; draw lines, veil partially, lift.
Finally: breathe in some of the atmosphere and stop for the day!
