I've been told the varnish he uses is a custom blend of three others, it's Todd Schorr's personal recipe...I can't remember any of the details, but basically, Schorr's "secret" blend is working its way around.
Google "Simkins, White Lighter" in Images. This is the only painting from Greg I've seen in a matte finish. I own it, along with some others that are all in a glossy finish. I like all the paintings, but considering only the finish the matte is by far the best looking.

Amazing work. No matter what people think of how Gregs work has changed or developed over the years, there is no questioning his absoultelly increadable imagination. I have no clue how he comes up with this stuff.
