THE FLORIDA KEYS
Photographic Story Clyde and I were zipping around in our boat in the Florida Keys when we came across this little island with a sand beach and mangroves. It was surrounded by turquoise waters and the peace and quiet of nature. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White PhotographsNiki prints her images on fiber-base black and white mat surface paper in the darkroom, then using Q-tips and cotton balls, she applies a thin coat of oil paint over the surface allowing the image to gently be seen through the oil paint. 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.
