Every time I finish a mini-series of paintings I get the brilliant idea of vanishing them. And it never fails, I let completed paintings sit overnight or for a few days then gently brush varnish on one. And every time it becomes a smeared mess. This time I noticed it right away and stopped, so it’s not as bad as some of the past ones.
I need to try spraying varnish instead but I don’t have a great place to spray things. And Seattle weather rarely cooperates with taking things outside.
Now, I need to repaint this one. I don’t have any of these mixed colors left over so it’s going to feel like starting over.
