Removing varnish

Hey all,
I want to remove the varnish from the surface of this painting. There's paint built up on the surface that I also need to remove. What would be the best way to go in order to be able to paint over? Should I skip varnish removal all together and just sand down? I don't mind losing the painting under the varnish anyway. I just want to re use the canvas .
I've used oils by the way, straight out of the tube and the final layer was done with a mix of turps and linseed. Thx for your help. Marino
