New “Resting Spot” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Resting Spot” ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12” textured oil painting

Taking a moment to relax during a road trip to Western New York, I found this picturesque place to set up and paint. The bench was situated in the perfect spot to just sit back and relax as the boats paraded across the sparkling water. What a great way to spend the morning!

“Frozen Islands” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Frozen Islands” ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12” textured oil painting

One of the highlights of our Iceland trip was to visit the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon. Completely otherworldly, large chunks of blue ice break and float along the water’s surface while the massive glacier looms in the distance. My favorite color being aqua, I had to capture all of the gorgeous blues in the water and the ice. While a little overcast, the sun was able to peak through the clouds and create a dreamlike sunset casting a golden tint across the lagoon. A magical moment!

New Waterfall Palette Knife Painting from Iceland by Niki Gulley

“Falling Water V” ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12” textured oil painting

Across from the unique Kirkjufell mountain is the Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall. Mult-tiered water flows and cascades from one layer to the next into the pool below, creating a river that eventually flows out to sea. Since it was a rather grey evening, I decided to play with the colors to create a more uplifting, fantastical scene. Using juicy, thick, diagonal strokes creates energy and movement adding to the sense of rushing water. Created with palette knife and oil paint, this piece is loaded with color, texture and joy.

New Palette Knife Barn Painting from Iceland by Niki Gulley

“Rural View” ©2020 Niki Gulley
5″ x 7” textured oil painting

Continuing our journey along the west coast of Iceland, I was taken by their simplistic architecture, often topped with bright red roofs to add a pop of color to the natural landscape. In the next several paintings, you’ll see I chose a different house or barn each day and set out to capture its shape, the colors and light hitting the structure, and the picturesque, idyllic, quiet scenery surrounding the building in all directions. Here is my first one, a small 5” x 7” study where the shape of the mountains largely resembles the design of the barn, set amidst glowing grasses without another home in sight.

Painting the Black Church in Iceland by Niki Gulley

“The Black Church,” Iceland ©2020 Niki Gulley
5″ x 7” textured oil painting

After disappointing weather in the north, we continued our adventure around the country to the west, finishing our trip on the Snaefellnes Peninsula. My husband loves architecture so the first stop on our itinerary was to visit the famous Black Church. Being the only church made of black construction material on the island, its distinctive appearance stands out rising out of a relatively large, flat plateau. I wanted to capture not only its color and shape, but the dramatic clouds surrounding it. Working with palette knife and thick oil paint, this little piece is loaded with texture, color and movement.

“Ross Castle” from Killarney, Ireland by Niki Gulley

9″ x 12″ textured oil painting

 

Day 7:  Ireland ART TREK
Afternoon location: Ross Castle, Killarney
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
 
On the last afternoon of our Ireland Art Trek, we visited Ross Castle. While the photographers explored the castle and grounds, the painters set up their easels to capture this majestic view of the castle and lake. With the possibility of rain approaching, the clouds were moving so fast that only a tiny patch of blue sky peeked through and we had to paint quickly. Afterwards, we enjoyed a peaceful boat tour of the lake and came back to our home base, to share our photos and paintings of our trip. What a great way to end a wonderful Art Trek with new friends

“Elevated Love” ©2020 Niki Gulley

48″ x 36” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Recently I felt compelled to paint a new treetop painting where a couple has etched a heart into the aspen bark. With romance in the air and the excitement of young love, this painting is full of playful colors and energy to match those emotions.
