In the image below, I showcase the problem:

enter image description here

Brush strokes change color when covering each other/interacting, when I go over the same area in more than one stroke, things get "whitened" and I'm using the simple hard round brush. What can I do to stop that, is there a way to solve this problem so that I get a smooth, consistent look with multiple strokes? Thank for your help!

Check your brush Blending Mode setting (tool bar on top): it's probably set to something that's not Normal:

  • @Stamios there are shortcuts to set Blending Modes that usually aren't well known to public: Alt+Shift+Letter. For Screen it's Alt+Shift+S — easy to miss something like Ctrl+Shift+S and accidentally enable it Apr 27, 2021 at 16:11
