 Finally...

 

There is much more to this process, but I thought a brief insight would be a start. But just a few more comments...

When the painting is judged to be completed (avoiding the temptation to keep on 'tweaking' it), a lick of Retouching Varnish will restore the lustre of the paints. Perhaps you may wish to glaze the painting? add a few more details? Avoid the latter. The 'tweaking' has to stop. If you don't a destructive 'fussiness' and 'tightness' will set in; perfectly good abstract areas will be given more needless detail and so on. Don't go there! Don't dull the excitement that led you to paint it in the first place. But don't forget to sign it as a last, satisfying  punctuation mark.
