I then gessoed that whole area and then repainted it. In the end, the white line is pretty well camouflaged. In the close up you can also see some places where the paint got “outside the lines” of the board and handle. Those spots were also cleaned up and camouflaged, and here is the final result. The white acrylic on the top of the shelf is showing up quite white in this photo; in real life it doesn’t show up that white!

Super recovery, Deb! I really like your wonderful shadows in this painting. Really well done once again!

Vicki Greene said...

Great finish. I doubt that you will hold on to this one very long. Terrific repair, I would not know that there was ever a problem.

You really did a great job fixing that run Deb, it isn't visible at all! and all those colors in the baskets are YUM, lots of work and it paid, looks terrific

You saved it! I didn't even think of gesso. Are you painting while snowed in??

Christiane, Vicki and Teresa - guess I pulled it off!
Rhonda - just began another one - but very lethargic on these gray days.
