So, I want to expand on the Plumeria flower that I have as my avatar currently, and do a piece that has three flowers total. A large one in the center, and two more, one on each side, that are "behind" it. I need to get color on the main flower, then get color onto the secondary flowers without spilling it onto the main blossom. *Then* after that, I need to mask them all off and paint the background black. I know various steps that I use currently. Looking mostly for confirmation and/or advice on how to avoid pitfalls that I may not know about. My intention would be to do the following: 1: paint the color in the center of the main blossom 2: put down a layer of bleed check 3: mask off the main blossom, and then paint the color for the secondary blossoms 4: add a light shadow along the edge of the main blossom, to make the secondary ones look like they are further away/behind/shadowed by the main blossom. 5: put down another layer of bleed check 6: mask off all three flowers and paint the black backdrop. Is that the right overall process?
