    :lol: Like the title says - I shot this image while en route to the Kodachrome Basin, thinking at the time it would eventually be a good candidate to become a bromoil print. Once I made the enlargement, I decided it was just too busy and set it aside.

    This weekend, on a whim, I broke out some photo oil pencils and hand colored it instead. It's still kind of a busy image, but I think it works better with some of the desert's muted colors in there. :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Oooh I love this! It might not have faired well as a bromoil, but you definately did it justice here all hand colored and snazzy looking!

    Well, I love it Terri. I think it is kinda surreal. I like it. I need to try handcoloring some stuff, never done it.

    Thank you! I hate throwing prints away, so I always try to figure out some way to salvage them. :lol: And this area was sooooo gorgeous; I wanted to capture it somehow.

    I forgot to mention I shot this with HIE, which is always fun to hand color.

    Stay tuned, Dirt; there will be a little something from me about the art of traditional hand coloring in the not-too-distant future. :mrgreen:

    :mrgreen: Marshall's Prepared Medium Solution was not applied here.

    This was my first time hand coloring on a Kentmere paper (either Art Classic or Document) and I used all oil pencils here.

    Thanks! :)

    I was joking I read in the original that it was pencil. When I did it, oil or pencil, I always sprayed it with matt finish to give it tooth. The turpentine was just a catch phrase. Sorry a little vague I guess.

    Wow. :shock:

    This would look great blown up like the other one. Maybe one day I will have enough money? :mrgreen:

    I think this one is stunning. :)

    :blushing: Thanks so much, Jeff! :hug::

    I really appreciate the kind words, everyone. Considering I had regarded this image as a throwaway, you've made me feel much better about it! :lol:
