It's a good idea to create a new layer every time you are working with a new element of your drawing. For example, if I were creating a picture of a landscape, I might have one layer for the sky, one layer for the clouds, one layer for the grass, and so on. Some functions in Painter automatically create new layers for you, such as when you type new text, paint with a liquid ink or water color, or create certain shapes. It's always a good idea to name your layers to help you manage them.
