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

“Nature’s Ascent” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ textured oil painting

I created “Nature’s Ascent” on another beautiful day this 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!
