Plein Air Painting Workshop in the Texas Hill Country with Niki Gulley

“Spring’s Kaleidoscope,” Texas Hill Country ©2013 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting

I painted these Texas bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and Coreopsis with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. In this wildflower series, I’ve painted the edges of the 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars with the scene continuing around the sides so that it can be hung without a frame, or I have the option of an espresso floater frame which draws your attention into the painting.
