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.

      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 (:
