Demon and Angel Acrylic painting

Hey there, y'all. I'm new to the website, saw it on a list of good places to get some feedback on artwork. My piece is a demon and angel at a moment of some holy event, intentionally left vague. The demon is distraught, and the angel is smug and confident. It isn't entirely finished, as I still need to add color and detail to the angel, and I'll tighten the demon a bit more, too.

Anywho, it's acrylic on smooth bristol paper. Any feedback about the composition, color balance, or form is appreciated. Also, I have been having some trouble with predicting what the color will look like on the palette vs. on the page. Complicating factors I am aware of are the color underneath, how wet the paint is/how much medium is used, and color shift from wet to dry. I also find that I have a hard time getting the paint opaque enough, especially when using white, but don't want to use so much paint that it creates a texture that is then hard to continue adding layers on top of. Any tips anyone has about painting with acrylic would be greatly appreciated.
