This image is a photographic reproduction of a painting on a piece of 20" x 12" panel board and depicts early Australian farm work.
Although it was difficult to see any detail, the sky in the original appeared to be quite plain which in turn, made the first restored image look rather bland and uninteresting.
At the owners request, some clouds were added to give the final result more visual appeal.
Normally, a restoration should remain true to the appearance of the original but in this instance, the owner preferred the modification with clouds rather than the original that was submitted with the plain sky.
The original is estimated to have been painted somewhere around 1895.
