New daily painting



Here's a new daily painting: I'm not sure if I like this one; the elipses and man-made objects made me tighten up a bit too much. I think I prefer painting stuff with more texture, so I'll have to think of something interesting for the next one.

Varnishing Tip: To reduce the possiblity of dust settling onto the surface, the conventional approach is to lay the painting flat for awhile until the varnish is tacky and then lean the painting face-inwards against the wall to dry. Something I picked up from my studio partner is to simply make a screen out of mesh and some stretcher bars and you can lay the painting flat as long as needed so that the varnish fully levels and doesn't drip.
