Hand Colouring Photographs-Jan Naismith-1 day


700 James Lane Hand Coloured by Jan Naismith


On this one day workshop Jan will show you the endless possibilities of combining your artistic creativity in photography and hand applied colouring with permanent oils and pencils. The shading within the photograph comes through the oils - no need to have painting or drawing skills.   Jan will have a suppy of images to work on or you can bring your own photographs. The best results are on toned fibre based papers with good highlights detail or infrared. Matt or Pearl finished papers can be used and  inkjet  matte rag papers can be coloured with a number of mediums.


Since photography was discovered in the 1830's photographs have been coloured by hand to make the photograph like the original scene.With the advent of colour film and digital photographic artists are looking for something more creative.
