During the cleaning process
A great example of a partly cleaned oil painting. The top right hand corner has been cleaned leaving the original colours shining through.
All of the picture will be in this condition when finished.
The poor state of the old varnish can also be clearly seen on the left of the picture. This will all be stripped away and the painting re-varnished and re-framed.
…and the finished restored painting
Here is a picture of the painting after it has been cleaned and restored with the frame having received the same treatment.
