The sound of sheets flapping in the breeze caught my attention and brought me down the alleyway and resulted in one of those purely Italian moments.

New “Laundry Day” Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Laundry Day” ©2020 Niki Gulley
5″ x 7″ textured oil painting 
 

I had to capture this laundry drying with a cool morning breeze set against a peeling paint backdrop in the back canals of Venice. Dramatic lighting made the sheets glow in the morning sun. I love the rich colors Europeans paint their houses!

Nighttime in St. Mark’s Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Nighttime in St. Mark’s,” Venice ©2020 Niki Gulley
8″ x 10″ textured oil painting 
 

Venice is one of the most romantic cities I’ve visited, and at night it is especially dreamy, quieting down from the tourist traffic and filled with sparkle and energy.  In St. Mark’s Square, you can hear the sounds of live music while couples dine al fresco or stroll through the dimly lit open corridors. Gorgeous marble tile floors line the walkways while golden arches frame the iconic views. I wanted to capture that magical feeling and transport you back to fond memories of your Venetian vacation.

New “Going to Class” from Oxford by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Going to Class” ©2020 Niki Gulley 
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
 
Inspired from a visit to Oxford, England, I loved the feel and energy of the old college town. We stopped in our tracks one day as we were passing in front of this Ivy covered wall, almost engulfing the massive hand-carved wooden door. Golden light was raking across the scene, beckoning you to take a look and go inside. The fact that the bike was parked right there, made it the perfect photo opp and later in the studio, the perfect painting subject.

New “Walking in Sunshine” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Walking in Sunshine” ©2020 Niki Gulley 
18″ x 24″ textured oil painting
 
 
“Walking in Sunshine” was inspired by a trip to Provence, France. Our timing was perfect and the sunflowers were in full bloom. Their bright, smiling faces as big as dinner plates, the path leading you deep into the golden field to the quaint stone farmhouse in the distance, and the beautiful late summer day made for the ideal subject. The resulting painting is full of warmth, color and texture, and my hope is that when you gaze into it, this piece lifts your spirits and brightens up any spot in your home.

New “Golden Textures” from Tuscany by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Golden Textures,” Tuscany ©2020 Niki Gulley 
12″ x 9″ textured oil painting
 
 
On the last day of our Tuscany Foodie Trek, we explored nearby Pienza to enjoy its picturesque alleyways and amazing views of the valleys below. Having been home to Pope Pius II, the town is filled with interesting historical sites, great shopping, delicious lunch spots and plenty of interesting corners to paint. I chose this doorway since I loved the texture and color of the walls, the prolific potted ivy turning red in the fall sun, and the soft light raking across the scene. Welcome home!

New “Serpentine Drive” in Tuscany by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Serpentine Drive” ©2020 Niki Gulley 
12″ x 16″ textured oil painting
 
Before we taught our Tuscany Foodie Trek, my husband and I spent a few days exploring the Tuscan countryside, painting and photographing the iconic scenery. “Serpentine Drive” illustrates one of the fascinating places we stopped with its mile long cypress lined drive. It felt like the trees snaked back and forth to infinity! Setting up my easel in late afternoon, I was able to capture the dramatic light as the setting sun illuminated the tops of the rolling hills and created long, dramatic shadows. Between the repetition of the vertical arbors and the horizontally flowing hills, the scene created a rhythmic harmony that added to the joy and serenity of the moment.

Painting Portugal’s Wine and Port Country by Niki Gulley

“Late Harvest” ©2019 Niki Gulley 
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
I painted this colorful vineyard while we were touring Portugal this past October along the Douro river, deep in the heart of Port territory. The grapevines had turned gorgeous reds, golds and oranges and the wineries were perched on such high hills overlooking the river that I wanted to capture that commanding view. Hugging the various elevations, grape leaves rise from neatly planted rows, inviting you to stop in and try one of their delicious ports.

Visiting Siena Italy with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams on their Tuscany Art Trek

“Duomo,” Siena ©2019 Niki Gulley 
5″ x 7″ oil painting
 
During the Foodie Trek that my husband and I led in Tuscany, we headed to the Medieval hill
town of Siena, with its incredible church, great people-watching
plaza, and interesting alleyways radiating out from the Campo with
something new to discover around every turn. While most of our group toured inside the Duomo, I chose to set up my easel and capture it’s impressive facade. Beautiful pink, green, white and black marble are stacked in such intricate patterns, it’s impossible to capture on a 5″ x 7″ canvas but I was able to at least suggest some of those colors and its scale, while showing the energy around it with people bustling in every direction.
