By adding lots of glazes of thin colour I hope to build a rich colour on this portrait.

This is the first stage of my experiment with hand tinting the self portrait I have made! After researching the process and experimenting with tints I have added the first layer of colour to the skin area. Hand coloured photographs were made from the earliest days of photography until around the 1950s . I was quite taken by the way this technique brings an image to life but at the same time gives a surreal atmosphere to the images treated.
