Brushwork restoration

Hello dear friends. I´d like to share this recent work with you. It was a real mess but finally, after 2 days work, was recovered. Ofcourse it looks like a paintwork, as always in these kind of extreme restorations.

Re: Brushwork restoration

I think it looks great!
Wish I could paint like that but unfortunately I'm not patient enough.
Just one little thing: in my eyes the color is overall a little too green (or too yellow, however you want to take it, measured in a- & b-values that is), but that could just be me.

Re: Brushwork restoration

Thanks, Der_W. I really did it like this but I´m waiting the client´s comments about this colour. This photo was assigned to a photo-studio which send it to me for restoration. I´m working with some 7-8 photo-studios and I never know the original clients.
Regards

[QUOTE=Florin;262153. Of course it looks like a paintwork, as always in these kind of extreme restorations.

I looked at this finished retouch and my first thought was Is this the norm when repairing damaged photo's . Will you get paintwork and not a vintage original or am I missing something here . Very nicely done , I like it . I could use a lesson or 2 or more :>)

Re: Brushwork restoration

Hello my friends. Back home again (I´m teaching all afternoons untill 7 p.m.).
Well, thank you very much for your gentle reply. I really enjoied this job bescause from the beginning I saw it as a paintwork, as art, not quite a common restoration. That´s why I put some "golden" touch when coloured it, I like it. Still don´t know who is the lady-client, haha... I hope she like it too.
My best regards,
Florin
