We've recently posted a section within the Winsor & Newton website on how to use
water colours for handtinting photographs. Below, I've included a link to the
"How Did You Do That" section of the website. From there, just click on the link
listed as: Tinting black & white photos with water colour.

I hope this is helpful.
