Smoking damaged painting restored

This painting came to us very grimy and embedded with dirt, and smoke damage. The owner told us that this painting hung in a bar for many years back when smoking was allowed. It looked like someone painted a caramel color all over it. Here is a fun time lapse video of about eight hours of cleaning time, all into less than a minute.


Finished restoration below:
The painting came out really well, and looked like the artists original intentions were brought back to life, and the owner of this painting was delighted!
