William Daniel or “Bill” joined the Royal Navy and like so many others, their families are now in possession of one of these portraits. This colourisation was made from a scan of a reasonably small photo. So some work was required to sharpen and restore the image before the colour work could start.
Colours were easy to match, examples of uniform can be found all over
google images. Six tones were used on the face. In all a two hour job.
