New “Marching into Autumn” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

December 23rd, 2016
“Marching into Autumn” ©2016 Niki Gulley
10″ x 20″ textured oil on canvas

I painted this colorful autumn scene near my home when the fall foliage was first starting to appear. I loved the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows of the cypress contrasted against the multitude of greens surrounding it. The patterns of the shadows underneath the trees created a sort of rhythm and I played up the angles of the trees and strokes to add to that feeling of a driving beat. I hope you, too, can feel the energy and joy of being surrounded by nature as autumn approaches.

New “Autumn Serenade” Palette Knife Fall Foliage Painting by Niki Gulley

December 14th, 2016
“Autumn Serenade”  ©2016 Niki Gulley
36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen, Oak and the forest of trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

New “Springtime in Tuscany” Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

December 12th, 2016
“Springtime in Tuscany” ©2016 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Set beneath a colorful sky on a beautiful day in springtime with the poppies and wildflowers in full bloom, I hope all of your cares drift away while gazing into this cheerful scene.
 

In this vertical wildflower series, I’ve framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These poppies look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

Palette Knife Red Roses oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

November 25th, 2016
12″ x 12″ Red Roses by Niki Gulley
 textured oil painting on canvas 
 
I painted these roses from the still life with extremely thick paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I’ve painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. 
 
This floral looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other contemporary flower paintings. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked.
