New “Woodland Journey” #3 Textured Painting by Niki Gulley

Daily Painting #42

 

“Woodland Journey” #3 ©2020 Niki Gulley
10″ x 8″ textured acrylic on 3/4″ Stretched Canvas 
Painting continues around the edges so that it can be hung without a frame.
 
Trees arching overhead always evokes a sense of mystery for me. It acts as a tunnel with golden light ahead that beckons you forward, culminating in something magical.

“Fire and Gold” Contemporary birch oil painting

“Fire and Gold” ©2012 Niki Gulley
oil on canvas • 36″ x 48″

I love the first signs of fall – the crisp feel in the air, the crunching of leaves underfoot, the beautiful autumn colors, and being totally immersed in nature in the middle of a forest without a care in the world. In Fire and Gold I wanted to recreate that joyful feeling, choosing warm reds and yellows of autumn and using energetic strokes with my paint to heighten that mood. Building up first thin transparent layers and then thick textured layers of oil paint also add to a certain glow and magic in the final piece.

“Fire and Gold” birch tree oil painting

oil on canvas • 36″ x 48″
I used to love it as a kid, growing up in the midwest, when my family would go hiking in the woods – especially in fall. The crisp feel in the air, the crunching of leaves underfoot and the beautiful autumn colors, along with spending time with my mom and dad were special times. In Fire and Gold I wanted to recreate those warm memories, choosing reds and yellows of autumn to heighten those happy feelings and using energetic strokes with my paint reminiscent of a carefree, simpler time. Building up thin transparent layers of oil paint also add to a certain glow and magic in the final piece.

Crystal Mill – Colorado oil painting

14″ x 11″ oil painting

Another snow scene – this one was inspired from a trip to Colorado. I thought this setting, with the river and the snow and the old mill, looked like it came right out of a postcard. Just beautiful!
