Wallflowers (Colorized): 1910

I found this on the site here and thought it would look good in color. The rug colors are based on one that my parents owned when I was a youngster. I used a new technique that overlays two layers where one is lighter than the other and gives the impression of two distinct colors. View full size.

NOTE: I also added some paint to those dreary white walls :>) - baxado

This has amazing detail! Being a colorizer, I'd love to know more about the technique you used, if you don't mind sharing :)

Thanks!
