    Hand Coloring - Brunette Hair

    Hi again Sharon,

    Well, I decided to try to see how "green" the last two colors really are. Surprisingly, it was not that green used as an overlay on an existing color. It is meant to enhance the brunette tone. 69.74.57 is actually quite a nice color. I think given the right image it might just work. 32.63.40 is a bit wild but I'm going to try it and see if it works on other brunettes. I've attached good ole Auntie Mickey's image with and overlay of 69.74.57

      hand color

      You did a great job with this handcoloring. There is a tad bit of compression due to how you put the jpeg up! The photo has a nice warm feeling. The way handcoloring should look!

          Color coordination
          by wmchauncey
          Been trying to get my mind in tune with color relationship between subject and background, I offer this example...
          Might I be better off using a different color for the background?
          With regard to floral photography, is complimentary better than contrasting?

          Background manipulation
          by graham5
          I believe one of the keys to a great smudge painting is the use of the background. What are some of the common techniques/tips that are used to change the background so it will better reflect the subject? Do some just repaint the background, remove it altogether and put something else there, or what...

          Complicated Background Extension
          by yyhow
          Hey guys, my first time posting on this forum.
          I've messed around with this image for quite some time and I have no where else to turn to.

          So originally this image was in a portrait layout and I want to switch it to landscape. So I've copied and pasted to extend the background....
