12″ x 10″ oil painting on panel • Dallas, TX 
 
 
This was done during a paint out with fellow artists at the Hall of State in Fair Park near downtown Dallas. I loved the architectural structure of lines pulling your eye up, along with a golden archer aiming his bow to lose an arrow skyward.

“The Oldest House in Glen Rose” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

  

“The Oldest House in Glen Rose” ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ textured oil painting • Glen Rose, TX 
 
 
Painted on location in Glen Rose, Texas with the company of my Outdoor Painters Society, I chose to paint the oldest house in town. It was so full of character and charm and I loved the big huge front porch and white-washed picket fence. The pergola welcomes you to step right in and relax on a rocking chair, visiting with neighbors and loved ones. Dramatic lighting and shadows add to the warmth of the moment.

“Water Hole” Textured Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Water Hole” ©2020 Niki Gulley
14″ x 11” textured oil on painting
 
I painted “Water Hole” on location in East Texas amongst the piney woods. This scene was so peaceful and I liked how the evergreens provided shade, keeping the warm Texas sun at bay. One lone boat sits on the shoreline, inviting you to sit down and row across the tranquil lake. I hope this piece transports you to a quiet weekend escape, surrounded by nature, with not a care in the world.

“Nature’s Ascension” Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Nature’s Ascension” ©2020 Niki Gulley
16″ x 12” textured oil on painting
 
I created “Nature’s Ascension” on a beautiful day last fall at one of my favorite painting spots near our home. I was attracted to the colorful dappled light raking across these steps and hillside, beckoning you to ascend. Meanwhile this majestic sycamore stands tall in its fall glory, also inviting you into the distance to discover what’s beyond. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

I have tried to make the most of my time at home this summer, so I have spent plenty of days painting in my garden. My plants have been a flowering explosion of color this year and I have loved every minute that I was able to revel in their beauty.

“Edinburgh Castle” in Edinburgh, Scotland Painting by Niki Gulley

12″ x 9” textured oil painting

Scotland Art Trek – Second Day: Edinburgh
Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the next day of our plein air painting and photography trip to Scotland, we spent a second day in Edinburgh, exploring the scenery some more. I took the painters further down the Princess Gardens so that we could get a good view of Edinburgh Castle perched high above town. Each student captured the looming structure in a slightly different, unique, beautiful way. Meanwhile the photographers covered a lot of ground, capturing Holyrood Palace, Calton Hill and the Miracle Mile. That afternoon we gave everyone free time to explore on their own. Some visited the castle, some shopped and some photographed some more. After dinner, the Military Tattoo was going on at the castle so many of our group got the once in a lifetime chance to take in that experience, too!

“Princess Gardens” in Edinburgh, Scotland Painting by Niki Gulley

12″ x 9” textured oil painting

Scotland Art Trek – First Day: Edinburgh
Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the first day of our plein air painting and photography trip to Scotland, we began our adventure in the Medieval capitol city of Edinburgh. Filled with energy, fascinating architecture and history, we were all struck by its uniqueness and beauty. While the photographers shot and explored the city, we set up our easels close to our hotel to paint the lovely Princess Gardens that run through the center of the city. I set out to capture the lush hydrangeas lining this intricate stairway with just a glimpse of the ferris wheel in the background while some of my students did the same and others set out to recreate the interesting architectural details of the buildings. That evening we all gathered for a delicious Michelin restaurant dinner and compared our stories from the day. With sunny skies and great company, our first day in Scotland turned out to be a great start to the trip!

“Ready to Ride” Gondola Painting from Venice by Niki Gulley

“Ready to Ride” ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 9″ textured oil painting on panel
 
Very few things evoke the spirit of place like a gondola does for Venice. This singular form of transportation is the signature of a city built on canals and just a glimpse brings forth dreams of traversing the many waterways with someone special.

“Venetian Doorway” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

7″ x 5″ textured oil painting 
 
After pizza fortifications for lunch during our Venice Art Trek, we set up our easels on a back canal near our hotel while the photographers went off in search of more costumes and scenery to photograph. The architecture in Venice is fascinating and in every direction there is so much ornate detail, that I wanted to capture all of the unusual elements in this one little doorway.

“Morning Shadows” Textured Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Morning Shadows,” Provence ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 9″ textured oil painting
 
On the first night of our Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop that my husband, Scott Williams, and I led in southern France, we arrived at our B and B and went into town that evening for a wine tasting and amazing dinner at a Michelin-star restaurant. The food was out of this world, the weather was perfect for dining outside, and our new group was great company!
 
The next morning, our painters stayed at our b and b and painted right there since the grounds were so beautiful.The light raking across the balcony and shutters was so dramatic, and I loved how the gnarly trees framed the composition to make a window within a window. Meanwhile, the photographers visited a nearby 11th century Abbey and took some incredible photographs. We met up later that day and headed to the nearby town of Arles for lunch.
