Another colourisation, this time of the wonderful Maria Callas.

All done in photoshop with a little video showing how I did it: together with my rendition of her classic aria, O Mio Babbino

Fascinating video, Ray. How long did it take to do it?

(p.s. the aria, from Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, is "O mio Babbino Caro", or "O My Dear Father")
Thank you Jim and especially for the full title which I didn’t know.

I have done a few of these and the colouring process usually takes at least an hour: this one, because it was relatively easy and a simple portrait was about 20 minutes long.

I then learnt the piece on my guitar and recorded that.

The video of the colourisation was almost 20 minutes long so had to be speeded up by about 6X.

I then made a copy of each element (video, backing track and guitar) and put them into Power Director to edit.

I think the whole process took about 3 hours to do, but on a cold, wet and windy day, what better way to pass some time.

Thank you for looking it is really appreciated.

Best wishes Ray

Well done Ray. I am going to access my Alexa and have her Play some of the beautiful music by this lovely diva.
