First color layer on the Night & Day paintings

As you remember (?), I start with the lightest of three colors when I begin coloring my paintings. I rub the color over the entire surface, smooth it with a paper towel and erase areas with a soft, cotton cloth (t-shirts work well). Mostly I start with a shade of yellow, yellow-orange or orange.I have tried to make many variations in color and design in this group of eleven paintings. After the first color layer is dry, I seal the surface with another coat of gloss polymer medium.
Soon I'll work the second color into the textures.
