It’s not often I get to work on large pictures like this. The glass had been broken in a recent house move resulting in the glass scratching the surface of the canvas. The customer not wishing to use a picture restorer asked me if there was anything I could do. I obtained his authority to touch up the painting.

I took the frame apart carefully to be able to free the broken glass. With watercolour paints I disguised the damged areas.  The glass was replaced with stronger 3mm float glass because  the painting was over 4’ x 3’. I then put the canvas back in the frame with offset clips making a secure package of the antique frame.
