SOLD • 9″ x 12″” textured oil painting
 
Just Sold!  I painted “Into the Woods” on location when we visited New England last fall during the height of fall foliage. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to the dappled light sneaking through small gaps in the forested canopy, illuminating the winding path. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

9″ x 12″” textured oil painting
 
I painted “Bridge to Yesterday” on location when we visited New England last October during the height of fall foliage. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to this brilliant red covered bridge connecting the golden landscape. Choosing this vantage point where you can see some of the river cascading over this rocky edge to the water below, you get a sense of how beautiful the surrounding scenery was on this gorgeous fall morning. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

“Nature’s Ascent” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ textured oil painting

I created “Nature’s Ascent” on another beautiful day this fall at one of my favorite painting spots near our home. I was attracted to the colorful dappled light raking across these steps and hillside, beckoning you to ascend. Meanwhile this majestic sycamore stands tall in its fall glory, also inviting you into the distance to discover what’s beyond. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

New Autumn Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

February 8th, 2016
“Exploring the Woods II” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 18″ textured oil painting

I created “Exploring the Woods II” on another beautiful day this fall at one of my favorite painting spots near our home. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to the dappled light sneaking through small gaps in the forested canopy, illuminating the winding path and brilliant grasses below. Playing off of the diagonal shadows on the ground and the zig zag arrangement of the trunks, I feel like the patterns create a kind of rhythm, adding to the sounds in the woods in this canvas. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

“Exploring the Woods” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 18″ textured oil painting

I painted “Exploring the Woods” on a beautiful fall day at one of my favorite spots near our home. The brilliant gold and tangerine leaves were glowing from the sun backlighting them, and the gnarly tree trunks were forming an intricate web that I just had to capture. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

“Autumn Symphony” pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

August 29th, 2014

“Autumn Symphony” ©2014 Niki Gulley
Pastel • 24” x 36”

This is a quiet, protected creek by our house that I like escaping to when I need a break from city life. On this perfect autumn day, there was the gentlest of breezes rustling the leaves, the vibrant fall foliage was at its peak and the only sounds to be heard came from the trickling of the nearby waterfall and the birds’ sweet melodies.

E-mail me at Niki@NikiGulley.com for more information about “Autumn Symphony.”

Last Day Venice Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

March 8th, 2013

Venice ©2013 Niki Gulley
8″ x 10″ oil painting

On the last day of our Venice Art Trek, St. Mark’s Square was packed with tourists and people dressed up in costumes for Carnivalé which we loved seeing, but we were hoping to find a quieter spot to paint. So we left the photographers and headed back into the local neighborhoods where it was very peaceful and picturesque. I liked the ornamentation on this bridge and the way the light danced across the water and the under side of the structure.
