    Lovely work, it reminds me somewhat of gum over palladium, the mixture of soft sepia tones with gentle colour on top.

    Beautiful. It looks as if a very subtle layer is added to the complete photo as last layer to harmonize all the colours. This technique is sometimes also used in oil paintings (glaze painting).

    I wonder if there are any publications where the technique for these photos is discussed.
