The shiny coat of varnish


Here’s my favorite part of making a painting: putting on the final varnish. It brings out the colors, brings out the contrast, and puts a glossy shine on that just makes it look great. it’s like polishing a nice piece of woodwork. VERY satisfying. It’ll get a least two coats, maybe three, with a couple of hours between each coat.
