One of Lance's recent conservation frames. This frame is a copy of similar frames in the Fitzwilliam Museum for Old Master drawings.
The outer frame is finished in 23.5 carat gold, water gilt and burnished. The hand-painted black inner frame is hand-coloured to reflect the colour of the chalk used in the drawing.
One of Lance's recent projects was this vibrant pastel picture , which he was asked to make a suitable frame for.
In order to compliment a picture such as this, a bright gold leaf was used alongside a subtle watercolour wash line- helping to bring out similiar tones within the work.
