    Outstanding result! You are indeed a master at water. But heck, what are you not a master at?
    Beautiful color on this as well.

    I’ve always use matte because of the glare when taking pictures but I did notice how much brighter the colors are before the varnish dries matte. I might now use gloss instead. Thank you.
