Part of me wants to encourage you to turn off pressure opacity setting on your brushes. Mainly because I would love to see you emulate gouache by layering you colors manually using the number keys.
But christ, I have to say how much I enjoy your current gradient-happy color work.

Pabloano, tell me more about the digital painting technique you are talking about.

I may have accidentally made it sound more fancy than it really is, but it's something I play around with from time to time and basically boils down the functions of PS to make it work like a real canvas. Essentially you eliminate the pressure settings of your tablet or brushes and rely solely on the number keys for picking brush opacity. I have no formal training (and don't overly love oil or gouache as a medium) so it gives a nice layered effect to the 'paint' for digital painting. It leads to a lot of happy accidents and I feel forces you to understand color a bit more. I would point you at the FZDschool channel on YouTube if you'd like it broken down anymore. It's a great tool for digital painters (IMO) to limit themselves and thus come up with creative solutions. I hope this answered your question.
