    I had a couple of "firsts" with this recent bromoil session. I was excited to try a new paper, Kentmere Art Document, which is a paper choice I kept coming across when first studying the technique.

    Didn't care for my initial results, so after letting the prints dry overnight, I re-soaked them and added a soft brown ink over the black, using a brayer. This increased the contrast and I liked the sepia-toned effect. Though the prints darkened overall, I was much happier with the end result.

    This is a giant sandstone monolith we hiked past in the Kodachrome Basin, southern Utah:

    And a view of Bryce Canyon:

    Thanks for looking! :)

    It adds an old-western type feel to the photography, especially the first. I like it.

    Sorry, Tammy - just don't look next time. :mrgreen:

    I like that "old Western" comment. Something about that sepia tone, eh? :thumbup:

    Thanks! :)

    I can't help it though. Anytime I see Terri and bromoil in a post together, I'm just drawn to it. :lol:

    These are neat, I quite like the sepia one, the toning looks great and the added darkness and contrast really makes that tree to the left pop.
