False color technique

Using the technique of false color, I produce a restrained color palette. The method is inspired by oil painting, where the artist imagines colors rather than duplicating reality. This process also pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography. Although the colors are conceivable, they deviate from reality. The process shares other aspects with painting, being applied selectively to areas on the image. Painters will often tint shadows and highlights differently in order to give a greater illusion of depth as well as evoking an emotional response. Additionally a warm-toned subject appears to protrude from cool-toned surroundings.
