How can I paint this red brick house but keep all the shadowing and details in the brick? I have tried creating a mask, adding my color, then changing to color mode but it ends up looking black and white.

I would start with Image> adjustments> channel mixer, through the brick mask. You want to put the channel with the best texture and detail on the black channel and adjust the CMY to be a neutral cream color. Adjust the levels to fine tune.

Frequency Separation might also be employed.

Hi. Try using the brush tool with the color or hue blend mode. Also, you can create a new layer with color or hue blend mode and paint with any tool.

Make a selection of the brickwork then add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer set to "Colorize"

Thank you Dave!! This is helpful but what if I need the color to be a specific color of Sherwin Williams paint (i have alrady uploaded those colors.)  So I need to be able to put a white paint color on the house AND see the brick detail....is this possible?  Here is a screenshot of what happens when I am trying.  What am I doing wrong?Screen Shot 2020-08-13 at 2.40.58 PM.png

Hi

Just remember that although you are simulating white paint - the painted area will still take on colour from the light around it - so it will never be pure white

See example below - I also added a curve and layer set to mutiply on which I painted some shadows

Gotcha...so there is not way to actually put a paint layer of the exact color I want?

 

Are you putting a color layer on it or just the hue/saturation?

 

Sorry for all the questions...I am just learning 😞 Wish there was a step by step tutorial for all this.

You can use a layer set to blending mode Color to give a specific colour but in real life that colour will vary in lightness (and even hue) on different parts of the building. So what you end up doing is using a combination of the Hue and Saturation (given by blending mode colour) and adjusting the lightness with a curve. If you change the image mode to Lab you will be able to separate the Lightness component from the colour components when adjusting the curve. 

But your overall aim should to simulate what the paint colour would look like on the house when lit with the same lighting (clouds, sky , sun - light reflected from teh ground .....etc) used on the photograph. So do it more by the look than by numbers

In your screenshot you are using a Hue and sat lay as well as a solid color layer set to blend mode colour. Use one or the other

Sorry that is meaningless in Photoshop terms.

 

What colour space (e.g. Adobe RGB  or sRGB) and what RGB numbers (e.g 246,248,221)

Watch this in depth colorizing video by Jesus Ramirez.   I really like his tutorials because I always learn something new from them.
