Thanks for the nice greetings, folks. I'm glad this is a manageable sized group - small and friendly.

I interpreted DLH's comment to be, perhaps, more germane for a novice - don't overfuss the early layers, else I might start wrecking things .... at least until I get the feel of the correct water/tempera mix, painting thickness, etc. And he's probably right. I know it took me a while to get the 'hang' of the correct amounts of water and pigment to use in watercolor, how much to charge the brush, etc. So I appreciate the tip - hopefully my 'gaff stage' won't last too long. Time will tell.
