I just finished this painting and sent it off. I had a minor finishing disaster with this one. I was trying to go back to brush on high gloss acrylic medium. It was way too thick so I tried to wipe it off and start again. I forgot that despite being water soluble there are still solvents. I wiped off about half of the painting. So I washed the rest of the painting off with water, being careful not to rub too hard. Then, back to painting. It took me a few days to get it back to the finished state. I went back to my spray varnish. It's it's more nasty as far as VOCs go, but has a much more predictable result.
