New Monet’s Water Lilies Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

January 3rd, 2014
48″ x 48″ Textured Oil Painting, Monet’s Garden ©2013 Niki Gulley • SOLD
Just Shipped - For this commissioned painting, my collectors fell in love with my water lily paintings, but I didn’t have a size canvas that would work for their living room, so they asked me to create a custom piece that was 48″ x 48″. Using thick textured oil paint and palette knives, this water lily pond inspired from our travels to Monet’s Garden, is filled with color, movement, energy and dimension.

I decided it would be a fun challenge to create an extremely large painting, and I wanted the final piece to be very uplifting, colorful and full of energy. Opting for warm colors and working with extremely thick paint and palette knives, I chose this lily pond reference from our visit to Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, France. The grounds were breathtaking and I could actually see his paintings come to life. I was drawn to the energetic flow and yet calming serenity in this view, and I positioned the water lilies and my paint strokes in a curving pattern to add to that mood. The morning light peeking through the distant foliage added to a sense of mystery and promise that I wanted to capture in paint, and share with you that feeling of hope.

Transformation oil painting

March 9th, 2011

“Transformation” ©2011 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 48″ x 60″ oil painting

Rather than create an exact replica of the forest, I wanted to focus on brilliant color and simple shapes to see if I could communicate the excitement I feel when surrounded by nature. Using energetic diagonal strokes and thick, textured paint, I hope you get a sense of the motion in the leaves and the power of nature to invigorate your spirit. I just love how this piece captured that essence!
