Just off the easel! This miniature oil painting captures the light shimmering on White Rock Lake as the sun is just starting to set behind the Dallas skyline. Created with extremely thick paint and palette knife, the resulting image is loaded with color and texture.

Sunflower Study by Niki Gulley
Acrylic 5” x 7”

I created this sunflower study with palette knife and extremely thick acrylic paint to achieve texture and dimension. I love how the bright colors pop and brighten up any room, and how the strokes contain so much movement and energy.

Autumn Birch Study

June 3rd, 2010

7″ x 5″ oil by Niki Gulley

I painted this fall birch study with extremely thick oil paint and a palette knife. I love the movement in the strokes which contribute to the feeling of the leaves blowing in the breeze and the energy found in nature.

9″ x 12″ oil painting

This oil painting is also inspired by Colorado. I love how the fall leaves glow when back lit by the sunlight and the calmness I felt from the sound of the trickling water.

“Nostalgic Overlook” ©2009 Niki Gulley
10″ x 8″ oil painting

Inspired by a trip to Colorado, we timed it just right – the aspens had turned color and we were there for the first snowfall of the season at the same time. It was simply beautiful!

I’ll have this piece available at the Dutch Art Gallery reception this Thursday, Dec. 10th, from 5-8pm as part of the Texas Daily Painter’s show. I’ll also be demonstrating how I paint a landscape from conception to completion if you would like to stop by and watch. We’d love to see you there!
