Elizabeth Taylor & Her Jewellery

Posted by Phil Morris (Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada) on 28 September 2016 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I sort of woke up thinking I forgot about this picture, wondering if it was shot
in black and white or colour. I was pretty sure the photograph was shot by
Miss Taylor's personal photographer, and it turned out to be black and white.
Then I got to thinking it would look good also in colour since she used the
b&w for the cover of her book on her jewellery. I first extended the hairline
to include all hair and extended the neck part to include finishing her neckline.
I also cloned the ring as it was falling down the finger sideways. Since I do
the photo in sepia tones before colouring, the early graying of the hair and
the pearls have to be coloured also.

The photos and negatives went up for sale about 2 years ago, but I did not
have the 300,000 euros to start the bid, so they did not sell.

Anyway, I like the contrast between the pearls and her eyes.

Unmistakeable who this is with those eyes. The "corrections" you made to the photo are flawless and really improve the image, and the coloring is superb!!

She looks more "approachable" with a little bit of white hair...
A great work for this beautiful person : bravo.
