New “Pops of Red” Textured Poppy Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 
Pops of Red” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on canvas
 
I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of vibrant poppies flowing along this grassy hill. Making sure to not over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature, Pops of Red II is loaded with texture, color and movement. Vertical diagonal rows of ruby jewel tones lead your eye to the foliage in the distance, inviting you to stroll amongst the gorgeous wildflowers. Arranging the blooms vertically are designed to lift your spirits and add joy and serenity to your home.

I’m excited to have been invited to exhibit at Studio Seven Arts in Pleasanton, CA. If you’d like to see or find out more details about Pops of Red, please check them out:

New “Nature’s Brushstrokes” diptych painting by Niki Gulley

  

“Nature’s Brushstrokes IV” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 48″ diptych textured mixed painting on canvas

I love it when we are driving through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of this brilliant carpet of red. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

New Poppies Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Pops of Color II”  ©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.

Textured Poppy Painting “Dreams Revisited”

“Dreams Revisted” ©2011 Niki Gulley
36” x 48” textured acrylic on canvas

In this painting I wanted to create a dream-like feeling using one of my favorite flowers, the poppy, so I chose to paint this landscape at dusk as the sun is starting to set over the distant hills to add to that mood. I love the wildflower masses in the foreground creating waves of color, and the curving shapes adding to the sense of tranquility. I was mesmerized what the cinematography in the movie “What Dreams May Come” and my painting reminded me a little of those magical graphics, so I decided to title my piece the same.

Plein Air Painting Workshop – Tuscany

“Poppy Passion” ©2010 Niki Gulley
18″ x 36″ oil painting

Our upcoming workshop that we’re teaching in Tuscany makes me think about the gorgeous poppy fields blooming along the rolling Italian hills in springtime. To think that such a delicate flower can produce that powerful explosion of color when planted in mass boggles my senses. Seeing that sudden burst of intense orange or red against the azure blue sky after miles of green countryside is quite amazing. I love how complimentary colors, like blue and orange, vibrate when placed next to each other and I wanted to communicate that beauty and excitement in “Poppy Passion,” while reliving some of my favorite vacation memories from Tuscany – the warmth of the people, the beauty of the rolling hills and vineyards, the delicious, savory slow-grown food and wine and enjoying the laid-back, smell-the-roses time with my loved ones.

If you like to see “Poppy Passion” in person and you’re in the Chicago area, stop by my booth #89 at the Oakbrook Fine Art Invitational this weekend. Visit oakbrookcenter.com for more information or check.

If you’d like to find out more about our upcoming Painting & Photography Workshops in Europe, go to nikigulley.com/?page_id=13 or e-mail me at Niki@NikiGulley.com for more information. Our September Tuscany workshop is full, but we’re taking names for  next May to Greece and Tuscany in September.
