12″ x 10″ oil painting on panel • Dallas, TX 
 
 
This was done during a paint out with fellow artists at the Hall of State in Fair Park near downtown Dallas. I loved the architectural structure of lines pulling your eye up, along with a golden archer aiming his bow to lose an arrow skyward.

“Morning Glow” oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Artist Niki Gulley

“Morning Glow, White Rock Lake” ©2018 Niki Gulley
oil on canvas • 20″ x 16″
 
On a peaceful spring morning, I set up my easel at White Rock Lake to capture the sun rising behind this beautiful, tangled Cottonwood tree. I liked how the warm light showed off the tree’s curves and textured bark, and I chose this vertical composition to show off its size and strength. In the distance, the sun glistens along the water’s surface and I hope this scene lifts your spirits for what the day has to bring.

New “Old Soul” White Rock Lake Live Oak Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Old Soul” Winfrey Point, White Rock Lake©2017 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ oil painting
 
During the Oil Painters of America convention held last spring, artists from around the country gathered one day at White Rock Lake to capture the beautiful surroundings. I was drawn to this magnificent, massive live oak tree at Winfrey Point. Setting up my easel close to its base so that I could see and capture all of its gnarly trunk, roots and limbs, I kept the background softer to help show off its structure. I hope you, too, can feel its energy, wisdom and strength.

“Diagonal Shadows” – New White Rock Lake Painting by Niki Gulley

“Diagonal Shadows” White Rock Lake ©2015 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” oil on canvas

Sunset draws lengthening shadows across the grassy waters edge at Sunset Bay, White Rock. The lake shimmers in the evening glow as sky high above fills with deep blues and before you the soft, moody colors stretch out, long lines beckoning you into the complex diagonal composition. Rich texture models the leaves, branches and tree trunk rimmed in the sunset and shadow. Vivid masses of color form the foliage on the opposite bank, fall at its peak. The long cast shadows draw you into the tranquil landscape and the peaceful, dreamy sunset at White Rock Lake.

Moment of Reflection oil painting

“Moment of Reflection” ©2010 Niki Gulley
24″ x 18″ oil on canvas

This is another one of my favorite spots in Dallas. Once you climb down the creek’s banks, you’re treated to the peaceful trickling sounds of the gently moving water and you’re surrounded by a canopy of trees, completely eliminating all signs of traffic and city life above. This location reminds me so much of the woods I’d hike through with my parents as a kid on a beautiful, crisp autumn day and all of those happy memories come flowing back. In “Moment of Reflection,” I wanted to share that joy and calm I feel being surrounded by nature.

Afternoon Impressions
“Afternoon Impressions” by Niki Gulley
14″ x 11″ oil painting

I am so anxious for spring to be here, that I just had to get out of the studio yesterday and paint outdoors. Pretending that winter is actually over, it turned out to be a lovely afternoon for a few hours and I decided to set up at one of my favorite locations in Dallas, Turtle Creek.

While right now it’s still too early for the azaleas to be in bloom, I really love the peacefulness of the trickling water sounds from the creek, the intertwining branches in the tree limbs above, and the dappled shadows created from the sunlight peeking though them. I only had a short time so I had to capture the scene and light quickly!

If you’d also like to paint this beautiful part of Dallas, join me March 27th when I teach my next workshop, “Conquering Cabin Fever: Expand your painting into a whole new world outside the studio,” let me know. For more information, visit nikigulley.com/ng2/?page_id=13
