New “Misty Morning” in Tuscany by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Misty Morning,” Tuscany ©2019 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
On this morning in Tuscany, we decided to get up really early so that we could capture sunrise over this beautiful valley. The hills were surrounded by a layer of mist that created this ethereal, peaceful quality to the morning. I really liked how the fog accentuated the miles and miles of rolling landscape, perfectly off-setting the villa surrounded by cypress and olive groves in the foreground. While I’m not usually an early morning person, this turned out to be a very inspiring moment!

“Sun Shines on Tuscany” – New Sunflower Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Sun Shines on Tuscany” ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 16″ x 20″ textured oil painting

Just Sold through The Good Art Company Gallery! “Sun Shines on Tuscany” was inspired by our trip to Tuscany this summer. Our timing was perfect and the sunflowers were in full bloom. Their bright, smiling faces as big as dinner plates, the sun dappled path leading you deep into the golden field to the quintessential town perched on a hilltop in the distance , and a beautiful summer day with a few dramatic clouds drifting by made for the ideal subject. The resulting painting is full of warmth, color and texture, and my hope is that when you gaze into it, this piece lifts your spirits and brightens up any spot in your home.
