It was my turn to present and I thought hand coloring some black and white photos would be fun. It was just Carmen, Kathy and Kathy's 4 year old granddaughter Josie but what the heck Carmen and I forged ahead anyway.
Neither of us finished our photos but it was a very relaxing way to spend the morning. For some reason the time flies by and you can really get into the zone when hand painting. I wanted to share a blow up of an area of the photo I was working on. It was a picture I had taken in Maine at a friend's house. All of my photos are really old snapshots I took when I was doing a lot of hand painting.
We used special Marshall oils, cotton and Q-tips for applying. This photo was a sepia tone.
I just love the colors and tone you can create with this process. It was so relaxing when my next turn rolls around we are going to do it again.
