New Winter Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

September 26th, 2016
 
“Winter Hues” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 12″ oil on canvas
I painted these winter aspen trees with palette knife and extremely thick paint. I love how the chunky paint adds to the texture of the bark and the movement in the snow and branches. The painting continues around the edges of the wrap around canvas for a sculptural-like frameless piece of art.
These aspens and birches look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other 12×12 trees. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. If interested in seeing companion pieces, please e-mail Niki Gulley for options.

Just Sold – “Balcony with a View” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

August 19th, 2016
Day 3, Greece Art Trek:  Santorini
SOLD • 12″ x 9″ textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

On the third day of our Greece Art Trek, we flew to Santorini and gawked at the amazing view from our hotel overlooking the caldera. Our painters set up their easels right there since the scenery was so beautiful, while the photographers toured through town, shooting the white washed architecture and fantastic views of the ocean below. I chose this vantage of the potted succulent set against the vivid blue water and white stucco balcony. With several clouds in the sky, everything had a nice soft light that created subtle shadows, intense colors and a cool breeze, making it such a pleasant day to paint.

Taking a little time out to enjoy the view and sample the Greek wines, which are quite tasty!
Next summer we will be leading an Art Trek to Paris and Provence, France so if you’ve always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing during lavender and sunflower season in France, and following in the footsteps of Monet, Van Gogh and Cezanne, please join us for this amazing trip! Details will be coming soon on nikigulley.com/artreks.

“Journey in Time” Santa Fe Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

August 15th, 2016
“Journey in Time,” Santa Fe, NM ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12″ x 24″ textured oil painting
Just Sold! This church, Canyoncito, near Santa Fe, NM is so charming that I decided to paint it in the setting around it to add to that idyllic feel. I loved how the brilliant white of the stucco and the red roof made the church stand out against all of the greenery and blue sky. Choosing the panorama format helps to set the scene and adding long shadows from the left, leads your eye into the composition and to the focal point.
Painting at Canyoncito.

New “Kid’s Perspective” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

July 4th, 2016
“Kid’s Perspective” ©2016 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 20″ x 30″

In “Kid’s Perspective” I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and soft shades of tangerine contrasted against a blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest and to direct your eye to the focal point. Utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

New “Harmonic Hues” – Aspen Tree oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

June 17th, 2016
“Harmonic Hues” ©2016 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ oil on canvas

I love painting aspen trees and I usually work with a more primary color palette, but in this painting, I wanted to convey a quieter, more peaceful mood. Opting for calming grey greens, soft golds and reds with hints of teal, Harmonic Hues reminds me of the serenity I feel while walking through the forest on a cool autumn day, being totally immersed in nature, not a care in the world. I hope you are transported, too!
