    Just a quick thanks to all who contributed to this thread. I have recently started a project to make hand colored post cards and found the info and links in this thread very valuable. Thanks again!

    FWIW, Wayne, I have a hand-colored portrait of my father and his older brother that was done in 1918. The colors have probably faded a bit, but I think that's still pretty good.

    FWIW I think Tony Worobiec's work is the best example of handcoloring I have ever come across. I think his sucess is due to his ability to not overdue the application of color in an attempt to mimic a color photograph, but rather the restrained use of color to highlight a central theme and add a sense of drama to the image. He uses a number of mediums to do this (including Marshall's oil pencils). Many of his images in "Beyond Monochrome" are some of the most captivating photographs I have ever seen.

    I agree that his work is very powerful due to its specific use of color. Having said that, I also think that most color films today are oversaturated so perhaps that adds to his appeal, for me anyway.

    Oddly enough, I forgot that there were hand colored images in his book. I still haven't managed to buy a copy for my library, but it shouldn't take too long to rectify that! Thanks for bringing it up.

    liquid emulsion on very heavy paper.

    I still have some left, but the stuff so good is gone..
