Just to let those of you who are interested in art know what I've been up to for the last couple of weeks!
I am a pretty fast retoucher, and as my colleague had done all the ground work in getting this picture conserved, but has a bit of a backlog in the studio, she needed a helping hand to get the job finished; so I've been chained to the easel for a while!
This is what Our Lady and her surrounding Angels looked like prior to me getting the paint brushes and pigments out:-

And here are some "before" and "after" details of the top right angel, the second photo isn't very good as I took it in a rush at the end, but it gives some idea of the completed job.
