Painting on Photocopies

Photo tinting: A way to colorize a photocopy for maximum impact. We use transparent and opaque acrylic paints. The transparent colors to allow parts of the image to show through, and, use the opaque colors, to block out or paint in the negative space in order to edit to emphasize the story.

Choose an image from my collection or select one from your own photo album. Copy to fit and 8” x 10” canvas. Make sure your image has strong contrasts.

Once painted and dry, learn how to adhere it to your canvas properly so that there are no bubbles or wrinkles. Finally we brush on a varnish to protect it from fading.
