Varnished my oil paintings with Damar varnish and Gum Turpentine. I usually wait for 6 months before I varnish so the oil paint has stopped moving. Now it may take 3-4 days for the varnish to be completely dry.
I am inspired by what I see around me. When I paint this it takes on a different dimension. When I paint in oils or acrylic, I am adding into the image I have, colours that will bring this image to life. I love colour and beautiful things: so this is what I paint. Mostly I paint things I have seen from travelling in Australia. Art can bring you great joy because of the image you see that reminds you of something you love, or an experience you have had, or you may just love the colours. The colours may add beauty to your room or office, and bring you a sense of peace or joy. I do hope that my paintings bring you joy or peace.
