“Field of Dreams” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Field of Dreams” ©2019 Niki Gulley
Three 48″ x 36″ canvases to form a 48″ x 90″ triptych
textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Field of Dreams is inspired from the beautiful sunflower fields we visited in Provence, France. The flowers seemed to stretch forever and the color explosion was out of this world! Back in my studio, I worked from a combination of photos, on-site sketches and memories. Painting the sunflowers full-sized in the foreground helps to bring them to life and hopefully transport you to this happy location. Including surprising pops of vivid reds and purples keeps your eye moving throughout the scene, seeing new things each time you look at it, and adds to the joyful feeling.

New “Pops of Sunshine” Sunflower Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Pops of Sunshine” ©2019 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting

Painted on location, seeing this garden of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I hoped you could experience that joy, too. Created with palette knife and thick oil paint, I wanted “Pops of Sunshine” to leap off the canvas and come to life. Using lots of short diagonal strokes to create movement and add to the upbeat feeling, golden blossoms rise from the tangle of leaves and wildflowers below. Working with complimentary colors also adds to the excitement and energy of the moment.

New “Bundle of Sunshine” Sunflower Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Bundle of Sunshine” ©2019 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, framed in an espresso floater frame
 
I was awestruck by these massive fields of sunflowers blooming in Provence. Seeing this brilliant carpet of gold, with its sea of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. Exaggerating the tile-roofed house in the distance also adds to that cheerful, whimsical mood of feeling content and like you’ve found your home. Created with palette knife and oil paint, “Bundle of Sunshine” practically leaps off the canvas and comes to life with its vibrant yellow petals and extremely thick three-dimensional oil paint.

 

“Bundle of Sunshine” along with several of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings are available through my gallery, the Good Art Company, in Fredericksburg, TX at goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&z.

“Rhapsody in Bloom II” Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Rhapsody in Bloom II” ©2019 Niki Gulley
20″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
I painted these cheerful tulips from life in my backyard garden. With all of our rain this year, I had a bumper crop and wanted to capture the joy I felt seeing them signaling that winter was finally over and spring had begun! Created with palette knife and thick paint, this piece is bursting with color and texture. Blurring out the background, you can focus on each individual flower. Creating a circular composition within the square format creates a harmony and flow, while unblended diagonal marks add to the energy and happiness of the moment. I hope these tulips brighten your day and lift your spirits, too.

“Flowing into Spring” Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Flowing into Spring” ©2019 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, framed in an espresso floater frame

 
I painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location a few weeks ago when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full bloom. I love tulips being one of the first flowers to announce that winter has officially ended, so I focused on these colorful red and white striped ones in the foreground, which contrast so well against the complimentary green leaves and grasses. I also liked how their height leads you back into the distant flower beds and onto the Degolyer house in the background, so I chose this vertical panorama format to accentuate that feeling. Loaded with thick oil paint, texture and movement, I hope you can feel the joy that spring is in the air!“Flowing into Spring” along with several of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings are available through my gallery, the Good Art Company, in Fredericksburg, TX at goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&z.
