SOLD - "A Touch of Gold" Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“A Touch of Gold" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 30" x 40" textured oil on canvas

Scrolling bark peels back like white washed parchment revealing secrets in the deeply textured wood below. A painting of grace and beauty, its verticality offset by embracing branches wound round as a sheltering arm. Each stroke is crisp, vivid, defined by thick textured oil, rich colors contrasted against subtle ivories strike a reververberating chord and creating a visual vibration that resonates in an optical song.

E-mail Niki Gulley for more information on her textured aspen and birch oil paintings.

New Palette Knife Lavender Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Fragrance Convergence II" ©2016 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple rows vertically to draw your eye up to the lone stone farmhouse in the distance. A few clouds drifting by mirror the shapes of the lavender waves to create a flowing rhythm. Perspective lines all converge, leading you to this joyful spot and I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!

This one is an example of a game I enjoy playing. Take a plain, ordinary scene and try to find the seed of a fun painting idea in it. Then, do everything I can think of in a painting to give dramatic emphasis to that one thing_"the seed".  This is actually the guiding objective in any of my paintings.  The difference here is the humble source.  Not much to really stop for.  

Having one simple idea of what you're trying to emphasize in your painting is a great way to give your painting impact.  Let the one thing govern all your decisions about what you want to do in your painting.

FLOWERS IN VASE by Linda Popple

Field with Coreopsis by David Forks (progression)

"Field with Coreopsis" by David Forks
11"x14", oil on linen panel

A few modifications to the back and mid grounds then some detail to the fore ground coreopsis and it's complete.

Building up the values and adding some details, still very loose and using the largest brush possible.

Here I start separating back ground from mid ground and establishing darker values.

At this point I begin to add broad washes of color, keeping everything loose and spontaneous.

To start this piece I sketched directly to the canvas with thin washes of burnt sienna.
