Painting and Photographing Sunset in Santorini with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

November 15th, 2017
“Oia Sunset” © 2017 Niki  Gulley • Greece Art Trek:  Oia, Santorini
SOLD • 7″ x 5″ oil painting by Niki Gulley
 
Just Sold! I painted this small oil on location in Santorini during our Greece Art Trek. Since we only had about 15 minutes to capture the actual sun setting, we had to sketch the scene in advance, anticipate how the light might look, and pre-mix our golden colors. Then as the sun was dropping, we quickly had to paint those warm reflected lights on the buildings and the water and the golden glow in the sky. While challenging, it was a lot of fun and such a beautiful setting to paint! Capping the evening off, we had a delicious dinner in town at the most picturesque garden restaurant and relived the highlights of the day.
