This blend of red, orange and yellow starting from the bottom of the pic and working up may be useful later on. I guess I just wanted to see if it would work.
Creating layers is easy enough but I need to work on some 3d depth where a lower layer comes forward through the upper layers. To be honest I haven't thought much about how to do that. I think the problem is that I don't start with much of a plan and actually at this early stage thats fine because I really need to learn what can be done before trying to tie it all together. What I really need is to start practicing more regularly. We'll see.
