Remastering the Masters


As a young man I loved to dream about restoring an old chapel or a Dome. Just scratching and restoring bit by a bit until the larger part would become visible and fresh looking. Just working at it for years is what I found appealing.
Now years and years later with photo editing software like Photoshop, it made it possible for me to re edit and digitally restore old paintings of the Old Masters.

I slowly made progress, bit by bit

Removing the craquelure, lifting the colors, repairing damages.
All done step by step and not with a one click photoshop action.
Of course when seeing the painting in real this has great charm,
but wouldn’t it be fantastic to see it in a refreshed way, and maybe,…
just maybe see it more the way the Old Masters had it in mind?
