Californian Vintage Photos Redux – Black & White in Color
Digital painter Melvin Hale uses modern technology to make old black and white photos come alive again. Melvin’s studio is located in Palm Springs, California where he has been working on refining his technology of digitally colorizing and restoring vintage black and white images of mid-century America – including roadside attractions, portraits, buildings and a handful of other subjects.
Melvin has also been awarded several prizes for his work, one being the prestigious Crystal Award of Excellence from the California State Fair which has been a exhibitor of fine art since it opened in 1884. For those who are interested in swanking up their living room, copies of his colorized vintage paintings can be bought through Melvin’s website.
