New “Exploring the Woods” Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Exploring the Woods” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 18″ textured oil painting

I painted “Exploring the Woods” on a beautiful fall day at one of my favorite spots near our home. The brilliant gold and tangerine leaves were glowing from the sun backlighting them, and the gnarly tree trunks were forming an intricate web that I just had to capture. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!
