Hand Colouring Workshop

image

As part of my ArtPractice I have been creating some hand coloured images.

For quite a while I have wanted to further investigate this technique so yesterday I attended a full day Hand Colouring Workshop.

The workshop was held at Goldstreet Studios in Trentham and was conducted by long time devotee of this lovely photographic artform, Jan Naismith.

Some of the things I learnt included the use of correct paper for the correct colouring technique is vital; photographs can be coloured with water colour, pastels and inks as well as the more traditional oils of old, and that each image could take hours to colour, depending on medium and  artist’s imagination.

Well worth the day.
