Coloured Version Of B&W History

minus the art of adding color to old black and white portraits - bringing history vividly to life.
Mads Madsen an 18 years old artist began his remarkable trade by restoring and colorizing the portraits of Civil War officers. The young artist had developed a strong interest in the Civil War, he said, and adding color gave him a way to feel closer to the history.
However, he soon moved on to colorizing more recognizable historical figures.
Winston Churchill, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant and Mahatma Gandhi have all gotten the color treatment.
He says each portrait takes about 20 to 30 minutes to colorize, depending on the quality of the photo and the amount of landscape surrounding the subject.
He uses Photoshop to add skin tones with light-saturated colors.
He always makes sure to keep a vintage feel of the photos - never making the colors too bright.
