False color technique

Using the technique of false color, I produce a restrained color palette. The method is inspired by my training in oil painting, imagining colors rather than duplicating reality. This process also pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography where imagined colors provide an alternative to reality. With a similar effect as painting, color is applied selectively to areas of 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.
