EBSQ Live: Hand-tinted Photographs

hosted by EBSQ Self-Representing Artists and Sherry Key
Monday, May 17th at 9pm Eastern (6pm Pacific)
EBSQ Chat Room

Hand coloring photographs – These ain’t your Grandma’s photo oils.

I have been hand coloring black and white photos for some years. Working on hand coloring with pencil, ink, marker, oils, pastels… in other words, anything but the old standby’s like Marshall’s photo oils. “Art Photos” help combine the natural expressions of an artist like me that enjoys working in various media such as sculpture, jewelry making, painting, drawing and photography. I can promise that this presentation will take you beyond your Grandma’s use of photo oils to hand tint and color photographs.

About the Presenter:

I started out early in life with a passion for reading and art. My family will tell you I have experimented in just about every media there is. During the 70’s – like so very many in the 70’s, I worked in macramé, decoupage and tole painting. In the early 90′s I received scholarships for sculpture and ceramics. I concentrated on 3-dimensional work like sculpture, pottery and jewelry but in the last year and a half since my son moved out, I have been focusing on honing my drawing and painting skills – working mostly with colored pencils, oil pastels and hand coloring photos.

By day I run a computer maintenance database. I live in Texas, in the North Dallas area and when not at work, I am creating. – Sherry Key

Don’t forget – EBSQ LIVE tonight at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific

Please join us tonight at 9PM EST (6PM Pacific) in the EBSQ Chat Room for Kris Jean’s EBSQ LIVE presentation on how to recycle junk mail and scrap paper – along with adding petals and other pretties, to make your own artisan paper. It is going to be a comprehensive presentation that will include how to use additives and drying times. It’s time for spring cleaning and this is a unique way to clear out the clutter and it’s certainly more interesting than carrying the recycling and trash to the curb.
