Reykavik Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley


“Reykjavik” ©2022 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting on panel 

My husband and I rounded out our Iceland adventure by finishing in the capitol city of Reykjavik. While a lot more peaceful than Dallas, TX, it was quite a contrast to be in the bustling city after the vast peacefulness of the countryside. One of the things I liked about Reykjavik was how colorful the buildings were painted and how much that brightened up a grey day. Setting out to capture those fun colors and the energy of the city, I chose to paint this overview of town with main street leading your eye all the way down to the harbor. Created with palette knife and a lot of paint, I wanted to leave this painting fairly loose to add to that lively feeling and energetic vibe I felt in Reykjavik.
