OZELLO MARSH 3 | Niki ButcherCentral Florida © 2015
Photographic Story It’s hard for me to figure out what I love most about Florida, but this is one of the reasons. There is nothing more beautiful to me than watching grass sway in the breeze, with giant puffy clouds overhead and a long, far off, horizon. 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.
