Add a painterly touch to a black-and-white photographic print with hand-coloring. Explore photo oils and pigments, along with application techniques to create a unique work of art that lives in the magical realm between photography and painting. Bring several 8”x10” copies of your own landscape or architectural photograph (no original irreplaceable photos!); digital and darkroom prints are both welcome. Don’t have your own prints? Not to worry; assorted photographs from the instructor’s collection will be available for those who do not bring their own prints. Other materials provided. Photography and painting experience helpful but not required. Notes: Matte/uncoated and fiber-based paper give the best results. Specific paper and printing suggestions will
be emailed to participants prior to the workshop.
