New “Looking Up II” Aspen Tree painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

July 15th, 2017
“Looking Up II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil on canvas
 
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. I chose vibrant, cheerful yellows and golds contrasted against a blue sky with the clouds drifting so that as you gaze overhead, you get the feeling of not having a care in the world. One large trunk in the foreground guides you and gives you a sense of size and perspective, while leading your eye upward. Arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, all add to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.
