The Painting Returns

Back in the gallery! Joan and David begin the cosmetic phase of the conservation treatment. Existing old fills are adjusted by removing tiny bits of material and/or adding new fill to bring the voids even with the original paint level. The fills are textured to match more closely the surrounding original paint layers.
