Maybe it was a mistake, but I've read the sections about digital color handling in the Krita manual and now I feel worried that the default setting on my computer will lead to pictures that will look completely different on other screens. I think I've fainted. 

I am assuming that for 99% of all cases, these things don't really matter. But my interest is big landscapes with very striking colors and deep shadows, which perhaps might be in that 1% where it does,

Is anyone familiar with how you use these different options for file encoding and knows which, if any, I should make decisions on?
It took me a bit to understand what the technical differences are between opacity and flow. I think I got that now.

But what I don't understand is for which reasons I would want the flow rate to be variable depending on how much I press down. In what situation does this become useful?
After many years I've started giving another try at digital painting. The extend of my works so far is this and this. It's not terrible and gives me confidence, but I am very much at a complete loss how to progress from this.
There are heaps of tutorials on specific things around, but I don't understand most things they are talking about. To me, it's a bit like "How to draw an owl: 1. Draw two circles, 2. draw the rest of the owl."

I've been doing pencil sketches my whole life and think I am understanding what I am doing there. But I don't know anything about working with color. How you create textures to fill in between the lines of the first sketch is a complete mystery to me.

I know what red, green, and blue are, and I know the difference between a pen and a brush, but that's about where my knowledge ends. Just doing random things and hoping that at some point I realize what works and what doesn't does not seem like a very workable approach to me.
Can anyone recommed anything to get a grasp of the very basics of working with colors and textures?
