Half An Hour Job

by Robert Westerlund

<p>Mona Lisa was a time-consuming project compared with this &quot;half an hour job&quot;. To transform this black&amp;white image into colours was much easier. However, her colours may be wrong. I have not seen her in real life. Perhaps her hair should be black/brown instead of red/chestnut? Her eyes? Have I neglected any spot? I do not know, but it is not so important. &quot;The interesting thing about a waltzing bear is not how well it dances.&quot;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Photo: Waldo Sweigers, <a class="currentContextLink" id="contextLink_stream8265503@N04" href="http://flickr.com/photos/waldo_swiegers/"><strong><font color="#0063dc">waldo_swiegers&#39; photostream</font></strong></a> </p> <p>Link: <a href="http://flickr.com/photos/8265503@N04/2117790739/">http://flickr.com/photos/8265503@N04/2117790739/</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

    Thanks a lot Roberto! You flatter me. You have a lot of experience of PS, I believe, and I am convinced that you easily could manage/fix a similar job in a short time :)

    Thanks a lot Sylvia! All things, complicated or simple, can be performed well or not so well. This was not a complicated thing, but I am glad if I have managed to do a well job and that you like it :)

    Welcome and thanks Andy and Ricky! I think that many artists are afraid to work with B&W pictures. I wanted to show that it can be an easy and quick operation (layer, B&W, Tint, etc.). Yes, her eyes are too green (even for an Irishman). Ha,ha, it was a lo

    Thanks Alan! Actually I think that her hair is almost black in reality. But the colour of her eyes is a tricky question, I think.

    Thank you Sarah! I agree with you, she has green eyes like nobody else. I also have green eyes, but more like grey-greenish, with a bit brown/yellow near the pupil. Yes, red and green colours go well together.

    Like it very much, the eyes are too green to be true, but that doesn't matter really, it goes well with the colour of her hair. 5*
