PAINTING EXERCISE 2: Step-by-step tutorial on how to paint greyscale using various blending modes

The tutorial is using Krita 4.4.8 version.
Today, I am showing you ONE WAY to color a greyscale picture.
I drew (using the pencil and bristles_hairy brushes set at different sizes, opacity, and flow) two flowers in black and white.
I am going to show you, step-by-step, how to color on the top.

Now, please know that other artists use Gradient Maps. My version of doing things is simpler and, I believe, a better fit for beginners.

I hope you will agree and have fun trying it.
