yesterday I restored my new scroll with the Bonsai painting. It had a nasty very visual scratch right over the base of Bonsai drawing that needed some touching up by me!

Below: This nasty scratch was probably the reason why the eventual selling price stayed low and affordable for us, so if I could restore it myself, we would be very lucky indeed! Mixing several watercolours to get all the right shades off brown’s and black’s was quite a task, but fun to do! And I think that the final result is very satisfying and you would never know it was there……well all you do now! 🙂
I am very happy with the end result and the scroll is already hanging on the living room wall again!
Only 4 more weeks to “BURRS” !!!! 🙂
