Tweaking older paintings

“Along the Shore” 40×30″ was originally done a couple years ago. After a couple more years of painting experience under my belt, I see things in my work that need improvements. Because my paintings are varnished, I cannot just paint over them unless I put a clear gesso on first. Wait a day to dry and you will notice a rather rough feeling on the surface. This allows you to revise any areas yet still keep the areas you like. After its revised, I varnish again.

This is the older painting for comparison. I do like the changes. Thoughts?
