The effect is startling!

My grandmother will soon be 100 years old. I want to make her a gift portrait (photo-based art). But I have no experience of colourizing black and white photos.
If you can help me, I would be very grateful.
Her hair is blond, his eyes are blue-gray dress is burgundy.

Had fun practicing on your granny. I simplified a bit and then painted in the color.

I like your colorization very much. Lots of detailed color work and subtle color variation. I think nudging the overall color balance bluer would make it even better.
