"Waves of Lavender" ©2015 Niki Gulley
Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! 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 waves vertically to draw your eye up to the cypress atop one of the distant hill towns and adding an uplifting feeling to the scene. Wispy clouds mirror similar shapes to the lavender columns and create a harmony between foreground and background, while perspective lines all converge at the summit, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot.
