Painting Vintage Photos

Posted on by 2 comments

I found a tutorial over at  for painting vintage photos.  It was surprisingly much easier than I thought, and now I’m hooked on it.  I can’t believe the difference it makes on the old photos.

This is my great grandmother Mollie Davis Harris, whom everyone called Big Momma.  I don’t know what color her eyes were, but I gave her blue eyes like my grandmother.

These next two pictures, I wouldn’t really classify them as vintage, since they are both photos of living people, and they would probably have a thing or two to say to me if I ever, in any way referred to them as vintage, cause their not.  Just sayin’.

This is cousin Robert Cowan as a young man.  Love the jacket.  Do those ever go out of style??

Last but not least, because I had so much fun doing this one, here is cousin Nedra Harris Turney as a baby. What a cutie pie!

So drag out those old photos, and give em’ a re-do in Photoshop. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results!

  1. How interesting. I didn’t know it was possible for non-professionals to color old photos. I admit I like the old sepia photos, but it’s fun to imagine the colors of clothing. And by the way, my great-grandmother was Mollie (Jollett) Davis. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Thank you I enjoy your blog very much, you do an excellent job. I follow you on my google reader. I like the old photos as well, I just always thought my grandmother had eyes as blue as the sky and what a shame it is that you couldn’t tell that by looking at the old photographs. How funny we have both have an ancestor with the same name, probably if we go back far enough, we are related. 🙂
