Painting Conservation, Part 8

At the end of last year I filled the areas of loss in the tears on Jackson’s ‘Boats on the Shore’ with a proprietary filler which is easily reversible. (The tears were above the rock on the right.) 


I then retouched the areas of filling using dry pigments in a medium. See below: 

This work was completed in December 2010.

The frame is in very poor condition and I’ll be working on that in 2011 and re-uniting it with the picture.
