I am still struggling to paint orange. In my procrastination, I found myself cleaning paintings. Then I decided to oil-out some paintings that looked wonky. It felt great to clean up the work. I don’t have a show for a couple weeks. Hopefully, these will be dry by then. I also varnished some pieces.
I am using a matte varnish. I love the glossiness of traditional Damar varnish but it is difficult to get good pictures. The glossy finish causes problems getting the studio lighting to accurately reflect the light. I will continue to finish them with matte varnish. Mostly yo protect the paintings from dust and dirt. If any of you have a better solution please, please share.
Meanwhile, continuing on with the saffron theme I painted this English muffin with marmalade and knife.
Thank you for reading.
