The best thing to do is to try to think (and work) like a traditional painter. Do some research into some of the master artists who inspire you.

For instance, when I start a painting, I’ll do a rough sketch and put a neutral brown colour on top using a Multiply layer. This to me simulates an under-painting of yellow ochre or burnt sienna, which is one of the techniques used by oil painters.
