Completion/re-touch

Figure scene sitting #25

Article text
This is a simple procedure of adding 1 good coat of re-touch varnish. I use Winsor and Newton. Re-touch is an air-permeable varnish which still allows the oxidation process to continue, but, it also brings up and back to life all the colours of older sittings which have 'sunk'. It's almost like your work comes alive and looks so much more vibrant and new!! I love this stage!!! The final top coat of varnish, which I won't do for at least 3-4 months, will be Dammar, I have decided.
