 Painting Restoration by picture restorer Alan Brown

Alan is an expert in cleaning and restoring paintings, breathing new life into the finest artwork. His work reverses the accumulation of years of dirt, smoke and grime which make oil paintings become dark and details obscured or lost – ‘it’s as if you are viewing the painting through amber-brown tinted glasses’, but once the work is complete, you’re left with a true beauty once again.
Although the painting itself is important, the picture support receives the same amount of care and attention. Alan repairs and stabilises the support, whether it’s wood panel, metal, paper, cardboard, composition board or canvas.

Alan did a great job of restoring an 18th century painting for us. It needed cleaning and had suffered some damage and paint loss over the years, but Alan brought it back to its original glorious condition. He also helped us to choose a frame which shows off our painting to best advantage. The end result was outstandingly good. Alan is much in demand and top-quality work can’t be rushed, but in our experience the final outcome was superb.

I am one very satisfied customer. I took an oil painting, dated 1943, of my grandfather in to be cleaned, touched up and requiring a new frame. The result is spectacular, and now hangs in pride of place at the top of my stairs. Mr Brown was friendly, welcoming, and clearly loves the work he does. I thoroughly recommend him.

Alan did a great job in restoring a much loved painting and frame following an accident, invisibly repairing missing paint and consolidating loose areas. The frame looks better than ever. Would thoroughly recommend.

I took in an old family painting with a rip in the canvass and looking rather sad. Collected it today and was amazed at how much Alan had achieved. No tear and much more vibrant, much as I remember as a child.Looking forward to many more years of admiring the painting on the wall.Well worth the time spent on it, thanks.

My Grandfather's portrait fell off the wall and got damaged. I have collected the painting today and it looks superb. Better than I could have imagined and the frame is complete again and golden. really pleased with this service. Very happy to recommend.

We were very pleased with the portrait of great grandfather. He was in a very sorry state & so was the frame. Alan did an amazing job. The down side is it took six months to be done.

We took in a grubby and flaccid Victorian oil painting and emerged a couple of weeks later with a beautifully-restored version. Alan was professional, knowledgeable and meticulous, and gave us sensible advice. It was a pleasure to do business with him, and we can recommend him without reservation.

We have a 19th century oil painting that had been in the family for over 50 years and which had been dropped and torn. Alan repaired the tears, reinforced the old canvas, removed the old varnish, touched in the damage marks and made it look brighter and fresher than we had ever known it. We were delighted and will certainly take any artwork requiring repair to him in future.

I took a rather old and unloved painting that had been left me many years ago to Alan at The Original Artwork Store. I really did not think much could be done for it due to its condition It had two rather large tears in the canvas together with a section where the paint had disappeared altogether. Alan quoted what I think was a very reasonable price and explained what the different processes involved and approximately the completion date. When I collected my painting, I was absolutely delighted with it, it has turned out better than I could ever had imagined. Alan then helped me choose what turned out to be the perfect frame for the painting. I can highly recommend Alan’s expertise to anyone you won’t be disappointed. Thank you again, Alan.

I needed a large oil painting of Tossa de Mar in the 1950's completely cleaned and quite a lot of restoration work to be carried out. I was recommended to Graham by a friend and found him very friendly and approachable. It took some months as you can imagine rebuilding up layers of paint, but the finished article was superb. The craftsmanship he employed was second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending his work to anyone. Thank you Graham.

I asked for an oil painting which had been badly damaged, with a large tear in it, to be restored. Alan did a remarkable job for me, within the time-scale he had set. When he returned the painting to me, the original damage was totally un-noticeable. It was amazing! He also re-framed a picture for me which has greatly enhanced its appearance and valued some paintings I brought into his shop. I would certainly recommend this business to anyone who wishes to have art work restored, framed or valued.

Alan has done an amazing job restoring my Victorian painting. The painting has had flakes, a hole and some other problems. The result was much better that I expected. It was restored very professionally and I could not be more pleased with the way the painting looks now. Alan replied very promptly and thoroughly to all my emails and questions and the customer service and support have been outstanding. Thank you very much Alan!

Alan did a brilliant job repairing, cleaning and rebacking our Victorian oil painting. The original canvas was in poor condition. It is now well prepared to survive the next 130 years! Thanks again Alan.

We had two Victorian oil paintings with flakes of paint coming adrift and a small hole in one. Alan is a skilful restorer/conservor. He sympathetically restored both the paintings and the original frames. We couldn't be more pleased with the end result.

Alan did a stunning job of restoring an old painting of my father. By looking at the technique of brushwork, the oils used, and the frame , he was able to give me a fascinating history of the painting. I had told him just the bare essentials about the painting and he filled in details which he had not been told but I knew were correct. Alan was amazing. When we returned to collect the restored painting, well it was unbelievable. I swear my dad looked younger ! Alan's craftmanship was extraordinary and I just wish I'd done it sooner ! Thank you so much Alan for caring for our special painting in such a professional way.

Yesterday I collected a 19th century family portrait in oils, which Alan had cleaned and restored. He also
replaced lost moulding on the frame and brought it back to its original splendour. I am delighted with the
quality of Alan’s work, which he completed within the time he had estimated. He also gave me some
interesting background about the artist. The picture now glows as it hangs on the wall, and I am sure will
be a treasured possession of the subject’s great, great grandson, to whom the picture has been given.
