1930, woodie, cousin, hand coloured

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    I Like it, and I have done my share of hand colouring photos, first they are sepia toned, and then I used to paint them with oils that were extra transparent, cotton wool on a stick was used, then the colour was rubbed off to sit only in the grain of the paper

  • Hi May,
    Sorry for delay in answering your comment but you didn’t use the reply thingy. I don’t always remember either!!LOL. Old age I think?
    Thanks for explaining how hand colouring was carried out. I’ve seen some shocking efforts but this one is excellent I think!
    Any how this has been featured in the first slot in Days Gone By.
    Cheers and a belated Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

    Hi Neil, good to hear from you and thank you for your good wishes, and I hope yours is a very happy New year, I could not see the reply box for this, so please forgive me, I am 80 now and some things have slowed down on me, my knees for instance! Cheerio

  • You are right May, there isn’t a reply box to use.
    I must of missed your reply. Sorry
    Regards Neil
