The Prado in Madrid have published a very interesting video (in Spanish) regarding the recent conservation of a Giampietrino painting of St Catherine. The video with conservator María Moraleda explains that the background had been completely overpainted with some kind of blue sky. I'm sure speakers of Spanish will be able to gain further insights and might be able to point out where the painting can be found on the museum's website (my search has proven fruitless, alas!).
