The process of handpainting photographs combines the art of black-and-white photography with a personal expression of color. By the careful and strategic application of color, you can create evocative portraits, picturesque landscapes, or vivid street scenes that reflect your individual vision and perception of the world. Here, in The Art of Handpainting Photography, author Cheryl Machat Dorskind presents the entire handpainting process from start to finish, complete with illustrated step-by-step instructions for each technique. Covered topics include selecting a photograph, materials and equipment, applying and building up color, coloring vintage family photographs, and finishing and presenting your work. There's even a section on how to set up your studio work space. A fine art photographer, handpainting instructor, and artist, Machat Dorskind provides clear, concise directions throughout, and all the lessons are accompanied by her own exquisite handpainted images.
