I'm going to start a new section after my success and enjoyment with the Daily Figure Challenge called Daily Level UP!
I have found some tutorials on Ctrl+Paint's Youtube channel in order to go back to basics of digital painting! One thing that I seemed to struggle with was the simple understanding of rendering with brush control. Luckily the first tutorial focuses on this very thing and I look forward to continuing through the videos!

The first video gave examples of how to clean up brush strokes with hard and soft brush/erasers giving handy worksheets which are all free to use and practice with.
First sheet with values then the second with colour. My attempts are on the right.
