Whitewashing a painting....has it ever been done?

aunt_chelle

I have a picture, someone painted, not horrible, but the colors are off and too bold for my calmed downed more neutral farmhouse decor. Has anyone ever whitewashed a painting?

My friend once painted over some parts of a large floral theme canvas so the colors would go with her new decor. I couldn't tell & she pulled it off, but this wasn't changing the entire canvas.
