Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The handcoloring of photographs began long before the invention of color film, and many archives contain ghostly 19th-century examples. Recently, graphic and fine artists have rediscovered this art and turned out both subtle portraits and splashy advertising art. Dorskind, a nationally known art photographer and handpainter, illustrates this step-by-step manual with her own luminous and haunting work. This is an extremely handsome and useful book. For larger collections.
Booknews
Offers step-by-step techniques and inspiration for handpainting b&w photographs. Chapters on selecting a photograph, materials, and basic color theory provide a foundation for material on preparing the photo and the basic painting process. Later chapters offer tips for portraits, landscapes, and painting vintage photographs, and explain how to present artwork. All lessons are illustrated with the author's lovely work, showing each step in the painting process. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
