I found this beautiful portrait at a flea market. I thought that it was a water color portrait, but the proprietor showed me that it was originally a photo that had been hand tinted. The photo had since faded quite away, leaving only the faintest traces. The image that resulted looks very much like a water color portrait. The back of the photo shows graphics that indicate that it was printed on special paper. It doesn't look like the stock a painter would use for his work.
I posted this today for use in my comments on lisahugheslong's beautiful horse 'painting'. Please have a look at her painting, "Beautiful Horse Painting - Hemment". It is marvelous. Both Bellin and I want it bad, but we are very happy that Lisa has it!
