Handsome bird, Madelaine!What varnish do you use? And do you mount the watercolor on a frame before varnishing, to keep it flat?
Hi! When I varnish, I put a minimum of two layers of Krylon fixative down first and then I use a Golden UV spray varnish on top. I have fund that this keeps the watercolour paint from 'softening' and loosing my edges.For the smaller paintings (like this one) I don't mount it or anything. This loon was painted on 300lbs paper so I find that it is thick enough not to buckle.Cheers!Madelaine
