The hand coloring of black-and-white photographs began almost as soon as the photograph was invented and has persisted dspite the introduction of color film and, more recently, the digitized photo image. Photographs can be colored using the same media that artists use on canvas and paper: oils, watercolors, colored pencils, and acrylics. This is a complete guide with individual chapters giving detailed instructions for each medium plus several chapters of general tips on color and mounting. Appendixes give names of suppliers and a media chart, along with an extensive glossary. This excellent guide comes from a publisher specializing in photography books.
