I painted this little Beatles record as a test for my new Golden satin varnish — I’m preparing to varnish the Peonies triptych and I read somewhere that dark colours can appear cloudy under satin or matte varnish if not applied correctly. So I bought a cheap stretched canvas and had a bit of fun.

For some reason your gravatar image reminds me of the style of drawing used in the animated movie, heavy metal.
I hope that’s a good thing ; )
…and what was the conclusion?
I followed some good advice — I invested in a good brush, used an isolation coat (Golden soft gel gloss) over the very dry painting and thinned the varnish a little (4:1) — and had no problems at all : )
You did a great job of the grooves/lead-in track… though it looks like a stylus-wrecking audiophiles nightmare in places (:
Now I will be humming “all you need is love” all day. I love how you painted the record. Glad to hear your varnish & gloss experiment turned out well.
Ha! I like your bit of fun!!!!
