FISHERMANS CAFE | Niki ButcherKey West © 2018
Photographic Story It was a beautiful day when we strolled by this sweet little tropical restaurant located near Old Town and the Historic Seaport of Key West. The smell of fresh cooked fish was too much to resist, so we stopped to eat. The food was good and the people watching was fun! 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, she 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.
