Elizabeth, you are a consummate artist. Keep exploring. Do not put that darkening jell on your finished product. It destroys the final product. You are at your best when you leave your paintings raw and vibrant. Just a little more vibrant definition on the eyes and this painting is finished. So glad to see your 'raw side'.

Carl, Thank You. The Good Lord Provides!
What kind of darkening jell do you mean?
Please tell me you don't mean 'Matte Gel Medium'...
If that is what you mean, what else should I do to
protect my painting? E

Good evening Elizabeth. You know that painting that you just did of the house at night and I told you to leave it alone? You didn't. You darkened it. To me you destroyed the vibrant elegance of light impeding the approaching dark night. You did the same thing with your last chick painting. Pity, both paintings were so vibrant before you stole their life with some cover up darkening medium. Hobby lobby has a non-yellowing spray varnish that brings out the true color of the paint while preserving the surface. The major problem for you is that you live in a climate that requires you to wait four to six months before you can spray the painting. But the vibrancy of your paintings will command attention if you have the patience to do it.

Ahem! The Bird sez Noooo and The Cat is asking, 'What Did I do, Now/" Lol!
If I darken, I use a color wash but also, I work in acrylic. Washes are still tricky for moi...
Gonna Try something Diff with the house pic. :D
