Today’s question comes from Joyce and she asks:
“I have an unfinished oil painting and haven’t worked on it in about 5 years. It is painted in the old master’s tradition and already has about 27 layers of glazing. Is there anything I have to do to the painting in order to finish it. Do I need to treat it with oil or something else. It is a portrait and I need to re-do the nose and eye area. I am 71 so my “need” is pretty much “do it now or throw it away.” My daughter wants to frame and hang it.”
Do you have any information that might help Joyce? If so, please leave your response in the comments box below. Thank you!
