The others would be the Intermediate Strokes cloning layer, and the Detail Strokes cloning layer. So when you take a brush, and we'll grab Flat Cloner here, and I'm going to jump up to 100% too just so we see a little more clearly. When I start painting with this brush, where is that color actually coming from? We certainly see the reference image, but I can turn it off and I can still paint.

So it's not coming from the reference image; it's actually embedded in each of the cloning layers. So the Underpainting layer, the Intermediate Strokes layer, and the Detail Strokes layer each have a copy of the reference image embedded in it. It's the nature of the way the cloning brushes work that they pick up that color and paint with it. Now, each of these layers are almost 100%...
