Tastings at Patriot Place

Oil with a palette knife on artist board
12" x 12"
I worked on this painting some more after our Patriot's Place plein air event last month. Here it is after I glazed it and framed it up. I love how the glaze brings the colors back to life after the paint has dried. I'd love to hear if other artists glaze and/or varnish their paintings after they have dried and what brands you use. I used Liquin Original here but have also tried Dammar Varnish. The varnish seems to be smellier (is that a word?) takes longer to dry, and leaves a much shinier coat.

I love this piece. The colors are fabulous! Thanks for the info on varnishes. I have a couple of pieces that need it and I've never done it.

I love your painting style, also the colors are gorgeous. I don't know a thing about varnishes. I'm thinking about trying oils again. I just use acrylics right now.

Ann, I love this. That green roof in the background is superb with the red and orange colors in the foreground. I've only done a couple palette knife paintings, but you are inspiring me to give it another try. And thanks so much for your kind comment on my blog.
