After I finished this one, my grandchild messed coffee all over my painting.

Your flower is beautiful.  :clap:
Sometimes I do a glaze of clean water to help "settle" things in.
You can also keep glazing (lightly) your background to settle things in.

 :eek:      Well that should give it an interesting patina!  :whistle:
  :jk: Sorry to hear that, was it salvageable? You did a great job on the flower, the background could be glazed a bit darker to help smooth it out a bit, and to make the flower stand out more. Nicely done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks Val, it was all my fault, I made her coffee and asked her to come sit with me. I will try and salvage the background and maybe my flower will look much nicer. :hug: :hug:

Your flower must have a nice coffee aroma.  Some people paint with coffee.  Good salvage.
