Actually that doesnt look all that bad. Look up shear scraping, Lyle Jamieson has a good video. Can be done with the wings of a bowl gouge ( ground with long wings of course) or my favorite is a thick wide scraper with an angled edge. The idea is to scrape at ~40-45* angle. Makes very wispy shavings. It takes a very good turner to not have some uneveness in the finish off a gouge, especially bowls. Shear scraping is an excellent method to clean up the finish and do final, fine shaping work.
