I just put the second coat of vanish on the portrait of my girlfriend. I absolutely love the way the varnish breathes life back into the painting. I also put hardware on the antique frame for the painting. I'll put the painting in the frame tonight after the varnish dries and it'll be all set!
I also want to thank all of my followers on Instagram. I've been doing a bunch of commissioned portraits and it has really pushed me to become a better academic artist. I'm so happy that I get to share my drawings with so many people. Thank you for all the amazing support!
