Hand-coloring photography is an old technique used before color photographs.  Transparent oil paints and pencils are applied directly onto a black and white photograph.  The blacks and grays of the photograph provide a contrast to the soft colors.  The result is a unique, one of a kind work of art.

These collections are a combination of new and old photographs taken in the Rocky Mountains - some are hand-colored reproductions of Fred Clatworthy photographs from the early-mid 1900's.
