I do love varnishing...


...it really deepens colours, blacks especially, and has brought this painting back from the brink. Still kind of not happy with it, but it's got the right mood I think.

Ooo I'm a poet and I don't know it lol :)

I think it looks great man . . . one thing to consider, try killing some of the highlights on his forehead, they draw a lot of attention to that part of his face and the lighting doesn't match . . . . I think if you softened that value a bit it would pull together much nicer. Just my two thoughts . . .
