Ready to varnish

I think I am ready to call this picture done. I would like it to look a bit smoother and cleaner but I don't think I can achieve that with more paint. The basic design works and it is probably the boldest thing I have ever done. Now I need to finish it up. I'm hoping a few layers of varnish will do the trick. I could put a bit of transparent colour in the varnish making it a glaze.  But I don't want to loose the whiteness which is what I remember most from the aura. I did not see thus many colours and of course it unfolded over time starting with the centre bit and then fading outwards so it was never this complex. I will put some jewels on it. Dine for today.
