    I haven't posted anything in months, you guys are making me feel guilty!

    Here's a new one: a friend of mine, late at night, only lighting from under a floor lamp!

    Since the harsh lighting created distinct hard lines, I opted for a two bath development here - 1.5 min in Selectol Soft and 1 minute in Dektol, after exposing Kentmere Fineprint semi matte at Grade 2. This is my new handcoloring paper - great stuff. Photo oils and oil pencils used.

    Thanks for looking!

    Wow, that's pretty neat. I've never seen anything like it (in a good way). :)

    I'm so NOT good at hand coloring so this really impresses me. I like the hair the best.

    It is nice to see artists involved in these older processes. There are very few doing this kind of work. Great job!! Bill

    These older processes are what I live for. ;) Thanks so much for the kind words, Bill.
