Examination using raking or specular light occurs when an artwork is illuminated with a light source positioned at an oblique angle to the object's surface. This can yield information relating to planar deformations, irregularities in the paint and varnish, and other surface conditions.

Reducing the blanched, degraded varnish revealed intact paint beneath. Blanched varnish can occur when the surface of an artwork is exposed to drastic changes in temperature and humidity or when the surface is directly exposed to moisture.

Local humidification was used to gently relax the paint layers that were suffering from planar deformation and showing signs of delamination. A moistened section of felt was placed inside a polyethylene chamber to gradually raise the humidity. As the painting remained in a vertical position throughout the treatment, magnets were used to hold the chamber in place during humidification.

Additional tests were performed in the upper half of the painting to assess the condition of the varnish. Changes in temperature and humidity can accelerate degradation processes in the varnish, creating areas that appear "frosty" or undersaturated/blanched.
