I would like to make some changes to an oil painting which I thought I had finished. It is touch dry. I used Old Holland oils with a small amount of linseed oil as a medium. Should I use retouch varnish on the area I wish to rework? I have been told that I can put a layer of linseed on as an alternative to retouch varnish.. Advice much needed thank you Fiona McClean
