Last Piece of Cheese | Next Piece of Cheese

I made this cartoon for an old friend of mine who's a collector and a specialist in History of Photography, like my hubby and my late Dad. This one is about the invention of colour photography by the French Ducos du Hauron (circa 1868). He was using three coats of various colours; very difficult to manipulate but the results were amazing (you can see a view of Agen, his town, here).
Trichromy by Ducos du Hauron
Translation:
"Meanwhile, in Ducos du Hauron's workshop..."
Ratty: "I'm afraid they're right. Trichromy will never work for portrait."

Three pretty foxes! I think trichromy works very well for portraits! Look at the results - it's better than cloning! (at least you can keep these guys apart...LOL)

Love the looks on their faces! Just adorable, all three of them. And poor Ratty now has to take care of three cute Foxys... Heh heh... Should be, um, fun. And exhausting. *naughty grin*

Ohhh I love this one. Such pretty pets! And I learned something about early photography too. :)

No, trichromy will definitely never work with those curious foxes going in three different directions. Unless you're looking for multiple exposures. :-)

My thoughts exactly - you took the words right out of my mouth LOL
