BAHIA HONDA PALMS © 2017
Photographic Story Clyde and I spent a month down in the Florida Keys and fell in love with the place. We especially enjoyed Bahia Honda State Park. The turquoise water and quiet peace was like heaven. We experienced so much beauty surrounded by such glorious water that we didn’t want to leave. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Photographed with a Sony digital camera and instead of oil painting with Q-tips and cotton balls, Niki was able to paint using Photoshop. Changing from the old-fashioned way of doing her art, to the new ‘fashion’ of using technology was challenging, but she’s enjoying getting back to her own personal expression. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
