New “Tidal Flow” Abstract Seascape Series by Niki Gulley

 

  “Tidal Flow II” ©2020 Niki Gulley

16″ x 16″ Textured Mixed Media on 3/4″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

In this series, I layered and layered and layered paint over the course of several weeks. Longing for a cool beach and the cathartic sounds of the ocean, I started with drippy, fluid paint and  then built up thick texture to bring the seaside waves to life. Slightly abstract, loose and free, I hope you can feel the healing qualities of the water, especially if we can’t get there ourselves right now.

Yellow and Purple Iris Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Iris on Parade #11”  ©2020 Niki Gulley • 12″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

This is part of a new series of paintings that I am doing that incorporates a couple of different techniques, from thicker paint applied with palette knife along with drips and swirls. This gives the painting even more of a 3D feel that just comes alive and jumps off the page.

“Purple Shadows” from the Willow City Loop by Niki Gulley

            

“Purple Shadows”  ©2020 Niki Gulley •  9″ x 12″ palette knife oil painting
 
Painted on location along the Willow City Loop in Fredericksburg, TX, I was drawn to this tranquil spot, especially as the day was getting hotter. When I started the scene, there were just a few shadows being cast from the trees on the right but they kept growing as I was painting! I liked the rhythm they were creating so I decided to include their patterns and go ahead and chase the light (which is a no no for plein air painters). But there’s always exceptions to the rules, right? I hope you enjoy this cool peaceful place as much as I did.

New “Barn at LBJ Ranch” Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

            

“Barn at LBJ Ranch”  ©2020 Niki Gulley •  9″ x 12″ palette knife oil painting
 
I created this while on a painting competition for the American Impressionists Society which was held in Fredericksburg, TX this spring. We were open to painting anything that we would like and I ran across this beautiful red barn nestled in amongst the massive, gnarly trees on the LBJ Ranch and just couldn’t resist painting it.

“Rooted” Gnarly Oak Trees from Louisiana by Niki Gulley

           

 
“Rooted”  ©2020 Niki Gulley •  9″ x 12″ palette knife oil painting
 
On the final day of our New Orleans Art Trek, we drove out to Oak Alley Plantation and were awed by its impressive grounds and 300 year old oak trees. Enjoying the quiet after the busy bustle of New Orleans, I set out to capture the beauty of these old gnarled trees.

New Orleans Garden District Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Oak Beauties,” New Orleans  ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 9″ palette knife oil painting
 
On our plein air painting and photography workshop my husband and I taught in New Orleans, we rode the trolley to the Garden District and set out to capture the beautiful architecture so distinctive of the area. I was attracted to this grand pink house, and in particular I loved the huge old oak tree framing it. The dappled light hitting the trunk was so striking that I decided to accentuate that in my painting with a multitude of colors and values while making the background soft to keep the composition from becoming too cluttered. The sheer size and age of the trees in New Orleans is incredible, which I set out to show juxtaposing the massive oak against the smaller two-story homes in the distance. Created with palette knife and a lot of oil paint, this canvas is loaded with texture and uplifting colors so that you feel the joy and energy of hanging out in New Orleans.
