Where are layers in texture painting

OK I should know this but I haven’t used texture painting in Blender ever. Thought I would give it a try. First layer painting no issue.

For simply drawings without grading color this will work.

The “greater than” generate a mask, because in my example black color is “nothing”, (any color above 0.02 value is the mask) then the mix node combine the images using the mask as reference.
