“Flowing into Autumn” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Flowing into Autumn” ©2020 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

 

I created “Flowing into Autumn” with many layers of paint, starting with a swirling thin application to form the tangled underbrush and flowing current to thick impasto strokes for texture and energy in the foliage and trunks. Water rushes downstream as autumn leaves dance in the gentle breeze. I hope you experience a feeling of peace and warmth being immersed in the beauty of nature, letting all of your cares drift away.

New “Falling Water” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Falling Water” ©2019 Niki Gulley
16″ x 12” textured oil painting

My husband and I both LOVE waterfalls, and we try to visit them whenever we can find them on our adventures. This beautiful cascade turned out to
be right in my husband’s backyard where he grew up. We were in New York
visiting his hometown, and having grown up in a city, I couldn’t
believe this gorgeous spectacle was right outside his door! Not far from
Niagara falls, this massive water flow crashed and glided along the
intricate rock formations rushing into the river far below. The sound of
water rushing was so energetic and peaceful at the same time, and I
wanted to capture that invigorating feeling in my painting. Setting up
my easel at its base, I set out to recreate the energy and flow of the
cascades while showing some of the lush vegetation surrounding them.
Creating strokes in diagonal sweeping shapes to enhance that feeling of
movement and rhythm, I hope you, too, can hear the flowing water’s music
and feel the gentle spray from its mist.

“Aqua Dreams” textured oil painting

“Aqua Dreams” ©2012 Niki Gulley
36” x 60” textured oil on canvas

When we arrived at this tranquil spot, the early morning light was very cool in color, but as the sun began to rise from the horizon, it shone this beautiful warm light that shimmered on the water’s surface and cast its hope of what was to come from the brand new day. I remember the peacefulness I felt in that moment, and a sense that anything was possible. In Aqua Dreams, by showing the contrast in the cool aqua/blues in the foreground waters against the warm golden glow on the distant pond’s edge, I wanted to share that feeling of hope and promise communicated by nature.

This painting and more of Niki Gulley’s textured landscape paintings are on exhibit at American Fine Art Gallery in Dallas. See americanfineart.com for details.
