“Witnessing Sunset,” Texas Hill Country ©2017 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ textured oil painting
Inspired by a trip to the Willow City Loop in the Texas hill country, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling landscape and wildflowers in full bloom. Then, to top it off the sun was setting in the distance casting its golden glow and backlighting the wildflowers. I had to capture the magical moment while enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds and rows of bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush in rhythmic waves create a harmonious scene that flows with light, texture and color.
