Force new strokes to stay off from already painted areas. Select the unpainted area with the Contiguous Selection Tool (=Magic Wand) and go on painting. Before making the selection you must set ON tool option "Limit to the current layer". ADD: The method has a problem. Antialiasing leaves one pixel wide noticeably thinner zone at the selection ...

To see some semi-transparent areas it can be helpful to add a temporary working layer that is a solid color fill, white or black, below the layer in question.

You can toggle the Overprint Preview on/off by hitting Alt+Shift+Ctrl+Y Note that the option to simulate paper is for showing what will happen if ...

The issues is with your choice of blend modes. You said the transparency of the blues in your logo is set to multiply, which has created the darker circle overlaps in your design. Multiply will blend the colour with the base colour. In this case it will blend the black with the blue. Multiply will produce darker colours and if you are multiplying with black, ...
