Hello from Russia with Love! This is Aiden,checking in from the MS Rotterdam which is located in St. Petersburg, Russia.

After enjoying the day at the Hermitage Museum,I have been inspired. I am ready to create a masterpiece, are you?

Have you ever seen a black and white picture with just a hint of color and wondered how they do it? Check out the steps below and get to work creating your Masterpiece.
