Studio journal 5/7/17

I worked on these two paintings today before my daughter and I went to the marina to work on The Betty Jane.  The left-hand painting, The Delegate, is sailing along, to use a nautical allusion.  Two days ago, I lightly varnished it with my special varnish.  Now, the surface is really sweet and the colors no longer sink in.

I recommend an intermediate varnish when your colors start to sink.  The cool or bluer greens frequently sink or form surfaces that are unpleasant to my eye.  A quick-drying varnish corrects that.
