“Golden Tangle” Fall Foliage Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

July 14th, 2017

“Golden Tangle” ©2017 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 9″ x 12″ textured oil on canvas

Just Sold! I painted this golden oak at White Rock Lake last fall. I loved how the canary yellow leaves glowed from the late afternoon sun as it illuminated the foliage from behind. Being backlit, the trunk went an inky velvet black and all of its gnarly limbs popped against that gilded backdrop, which I accented with flecks of crimson. Created with palette knife and a lot of thick oil paint, this canvas is loaded with texture, uplifting color and energy.
