Abstracted Ocean Scene by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley


  “Tidal Flow V” ©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.
