B & W Photograph by Skeen
Hand-coloured photograph (manually added colors to a black-and-white photograph), hand-colouring is also known as hand painting or overpainting. Usually, water-colours, oils, crayons or pastels are applied to the image surface using brushes, fingers and cotton swabs. Hand-coloured photographs were most popular in the mid- to late-19th century (1850s–1900) before the invention of colour photography.
