4 year old Katherine

Post by Ernst-Ulrich Schafer » Sat Sep 16, 2017 12:17 am

This adorable 4 year old came to visit with me yesterday. Grandma brought in a portrait of her with a with a four generational dress and wanted the same pose with the same dress. This young lady
was polite and hand much to say. Towards the end of the session I asked Katherine if she would pose by herself and this is what she gave me.

Of course I'm thinking the family is going to want color, but you know me. ;-)

Stunning. If the family wants "timeless" this image definitely has that.

What a beautiful portrait! Of course her chosen pose is perfect, and of course you captured and presented it equally perfectly (great background choice).
I love how you give your clients portraits that will be treasures 100 years from now. You would never stuff a baby into a flower pot with a knitted sunflower hat.

WHAT a stunner! That portrait could easily have been made a century or more ago. Katherine is beautiful inside and out, and a natural poser (I bet she takes dance lessons because that is a dancer's pose). :thumbup: :clap:

Breathtaking! I'm sure you already know that hand painting or tinting of photographs used to be routinely done well into the 1970's. I never developed the skill but I had an artist that did them for me. I would print on heavily textured Kodak R or X surface papers and sepia tone the prints before mounting and delivering them to the colorist for tinting with special photographic oils, usually Marshall's. The picture was first "doped" with a varnish to give the surface even more "tooth" for adhesion of the color. But your picture looks a good deal brighter than mine did, so I wonder what has changed in the processes and techniques.

Yes Charles I remember those days of the Hand Colored BW's. I too bought some Marshall Oils but never stuck with it. Now a days there are alot of Painters Softwear out there that many artists use and these painterly image was created by those.
