Hello, I painted this Monday from a set up, I went very dark with the background and like the effect. Once varnished the darks in this will look great, darks in a oil painting really dry flat until they are varnished. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. Once dry I will varnish it with Soluvar varnish, a quality varnish by Liquitex.
I recently posted a few paintings on Etsy again, Ebay really slows down in the summer. Do you have luck with either or do you have some other place you like to list?
