A BIT OF LONDON IN KEY WEST | Niki ButcherKey West © 2017
No matter which path I stroll along in Key West, I always discover fascinating subjects to capture through my camera lens. This particular experience was truly remarkable as I came across a telephone booth that had been somehow transported all the way from London to Key West. The tale behind its journey must be quite captivating! 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.
