Ox-bow Watercolor

A water bath to loosen the cardboard backing on this Ox-bow watercolor and then the careful removal of it; cardboard, with acidic fibers, becomes very detrimental to works on paper. A number of tears were also tended to: repaired with rice adhesive and rice paper.  Drying and flattening with blotters with weights to complete the repairs. The work is currently in process, and will receive color enhancements before the restoration is complete. Stay tuned for more . . .
