Hi Stephen, I don't know if you can paint over the varnish but I suspect that if the varnish will stick to acrylic then acrylic will stick to the varnish. One thought is that if you fail then you can chalk this up to experience. As you progress, you should consider investing in some quality materials. Eventually, the quality of brush will come into play as your stroke technique goes to a higher level. Buy a multibrush pack with synthetic hair. Brushes take a beating and it will break your heart to abuse a $30 brush! One thing that I've also found over the years is that I don't need too many colors on my palatte. Here is what I generally use; White, "Black"(mix), Ultramarine Blue, Crimson (Violet) and Yellow as my foundation colors. Almost all colors can be mixed from these. There are some secondary colors that are better from a tube such as; Red (remember my barn?), Green, Burnt Orange, Burnt Umber. You might get a starter kit and add to it. I buy empty tubes from Dickblick.com and fill them with my most popular mixed colors such as "black" and pale colors that I dont want to get contaminated on the pallate (sky blue, pink, etc.). I look forward to seeing more from you. Keep it up!
Love the light on the sloped hay field behind on the barn. Love it...
