I've started the Mill and didn't realize how dark the room was getting when adding color to the sky and behind the trees. I have the darks, and very little yellow.  I've gone back thru the lessons from 'start', and I can't find where or if you can add more color after the pic dries. 
Can I gently give it a spray and then add some yellow, burnt sienna, a little orange?   My brain doesn't have a long "remembery", I guess!!
Thanks guys n gals. It sure is nice to have such great people around to ask dumb questions. LOL

Retta, NO question is a dumb question.
With watercolour you can add or "remove" a colour anytime, even after a year. Just paint into it as if you had just finished a few minutes before O0

Oh....Thank you, Dennis.  I was astounded when I got it into a light where I could see!!  Now, I can wade back into it today.....in the daylight! 
Thanks, again.
