New “Strolling the Canals” in Venice by Impasto Painter Niki Gulley

“Strolling the Canals,” Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
I painted this piece on location during our Art Trek we taught in Venice while their infamous Carnival celebration was taking place. Since St. Mark’s Square can get overrun with tourists, we chose to set up our easels along a side street to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the city. I love the magical light that comes flooding in through the canals and is so distinctive of Venice. It is such a romantic city and I wanted to capture this couple strolling along hand in hand, setting the mood of this enchanted city.

New “Gondola Ride II” Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Gondola Ride II,” Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
12″ x 9″ oil painting
 
I painted this piece on location during our Art Trek we taught in Venice while their infamous Carnival celebration was taking place. Since St. Mark’s Square can get overrun with tourists, we chose to set up our easels along a side street to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the city. I love the magical light that comes flooding in through the canals and is so distinctive of Venice. The simple brick bridge and the one yellow building in the distance sets a perfect backdrop to the gondolier rowing his enchanted passengers through the romantic back canals.

New Venice Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“First Ride of the Day,” Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 10″ x 20″ textured oil painting
Just Sold! Painted on location in Venice, this morning I set up my easel along the lagoon to capture the iconic scenery and magical morning light. I love the silhouette of the lone gondola rowing its first passengers of the day through the canals. Working quickly to capture the light as it sparkles against the water, I created this piece with palette knife and a lot of oil paint so that it is filled with texture, color and movement.

New “Sunrise in St. Mark’s Square” Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Sunrise in St. Mark’s Square” Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ oil painting
 
I painted this piece on location in Venice during our Art Trek we taught in Venice while their infamous Carnival celebration was taking place. Since St. Mark’s Square can get overrun with tourists, we chose to get up with sunrise to enjoy the beauty of the city and the peacefulness of those early morning hours. I love the magical light that comes flooding in from the lagoon and is so distinctive of Venice. Fortunately, I got set up in time to capture the glow from the gas lamps, too, before they went out as daylight approached, adding to the mysterious quality of the plaza. Against a backdrop of the Doge’s Palace, a few people stroll across the square and signal the energy of the day that is to come.

New “Gondola Sunrise” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Gondola Sunrise” Venice ©2019 Niki Gulley
10″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
Rising before the crack of dawn to enjoy St. Mark’s Square before the mad rush during Carnivalé, I set up my easel along the lagoon to capture the iconic scenery and gorgeous sunrise. Luckily Mother Nature did not disappoint and the sky was filled with magical pinks, golds and oranges. I love the stack of gondolas resting along the shore just waiting to be taken out for ride. Working quickly to capture the light as it sparkles against the water, I created this piece with palette knife and a lot of oil paint so that it is filled with texture, color and movement.
