The long and compelling saga of this painting is available for your evening reading enjoyment in the In Progress section of this forum, so I won't repeat the details here. But there was a bit of a complication a few months ago, when I took this painting off the easel, I accidentally touched it with white paint, near the top centre. This was a devastating thing to have happen, as I had applied mixed dark paint, and then mauve stipple with a toothbrush in that area, and would never get a colour match to it.
My wife suggested I add a planet to cover the area where I had scraped away the white paint, revealing the canvas.
So I did, and it was just the right thing.

The painted planet looks better in real (surreal??) life than in the photo, as it is reflecting quite brightly in this snapshot.
Varnish will aid greatly in giving this one a consistent surface gloss. As it is now, all the different paint applications are reflecting in different ways.

Onward, upward, and away!

Hi Alan,
I really liked the way it turned out. Your wife's suggestion looks good and you pulled it off beautifully.

Here's the link to the WIP for anyone who would like to look that over.
