The layer stack can be a dangerous place.  It gives you amazing power and control, but that power often comes with a huge mess.  After all, you don't name every one of your layers - do you?  I don't.  But that doesn't mean my layer stack is disorganized.  In fact, I'd argue that your paintings will be faster and more dynamic once you've established a system for keeping your layer stack tidy.  This video explores my process, but we'd love to hear about yours in the comments.
