About Robin Renee Hix:
Robin Renee Hix
Robin Renee Hix’s signature style blends two of her loves: photography and painting. Her works are well known for stunning color and dynamic mood. Just browse through her new Beach Comber series and let your soul take a journey. These works offer up a modern twist to the nearly lost art of the hand colored photograpgh, a skill which flourished long before color film was invented.
Hix practices the fine art of black-and-white film photography. Images are masterd by using 2 1/4 medium format and low fidelity toy box cameras that produce sofly focused dreamy phtograpghs. Once images are shot, she develops film in a traditional wet darkroom, printing one original at a time onto silver gelatin photo paper. Only the best prints are selected to later embellish and hand-paint with oils. The artist usues soft cotton to blend paint and tiny brushes to deliver intricate detail.
