Colorization of Rita Hayworth Leanin’ on a Lincoln Continental


Black and white photo of Rita Hayworth and Lincoln Continental Colorized

  This black and white photo is of 1940s film actress Rita Hayworth, and the sweet car she is leanin’ on is a 1940 Lincoln Continental. This is the second colorization I have done of Rita Hayworth, I completed one a few weeks back of her playing ping-pong which can be seen here.

The car is a Lincoln Continental, a 1940 or 41 from what I could find. From the shade of the car, I could tell it wasn’t a maroon or deep blue color, so I found that a turquoise style was around and quite popular at the time.

I took some time working on the reflections in the hubcaps and the side of the car. I am a big fan of colorizing photos with reflections in them, they are challenging but fun. For the chrome of the car I used a vivid light blending mode and two different shades of silver/grey.

Below is the full size black and white photo as well as the full size colorization. Feel free to share this post on your social network of choice of leave a comment in the comment section below.
