Lackadaisy Expressions Boy, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I've had requests for some sort of expressions tutorial dating back a while now, so I figured, "Sure! I can explain expression drawing...and it'll be way better than all those tutorials out there that are nothing but charts of generic expressions. Yeah! Just give me a day or two to whip something up..." Um. page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks.

However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values. Since a degraded varnish will make the dark areas appear lighter, it will also affect our perception of the rendering of volume and space. Applying a new layer of varnish over a degraded one can sometimes improve the situation for a time, but restorers routinely remove and replace old varnish layers. During the 2010 urgent conservation treatment of the Ghent Altarpiece, cleaning tests were performed to establish the condition, compounds used, and solubility of the varnish layers.
