I’m a complete newbie, and obviously I’m doing something wrong on varnish or initial canvas preparation. i’m using Geneva primer, Geneva paints and gamvar gloss. I’m putting the varnish on thin, with short vigorous strokes like they show in the video. Am I doing something wrong? My varnished paintings look way too sparkly. I really want the deep colors from the gloss, and yes they are hard to photograph and on some angles they do look a bit better but there’s still a lot of sparkle. Am I doing something wrong? Cheap canvas? Do I have to gesso?
