“Tranquil Morning” from Santorini, Greece by Niki Gulley

Day 5, Sunrise in Oia – Greece Art Trek
8″ x 10″ oil painting by Niki Gulley

The next morning of our Greece Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop, the photographers got up early to shoot sunrise and I decided to join them. Town was so peaceful and the views were incredible. I chose this strategic location to capture the iconic blue domes over the caldera. It was cloudier this morning which created a peaceful feeling with softer sunrise colors that spread across the sky. I hope you, too, can feel the beauty and tranquility of this special spot.

Enjoying a drink that afternoon at our gorgeous pool view.

New “Gondola Ride” Oil Painting by Palette Knife Painter Niki Gulley

“Gondola Ride,” 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 stone bridge with its iron railing sets a perfect backdrop to the gondolier rowing his enchanted passengers through the romantic back canals.

I painted this piece on location during our Art Trek we taught in Venice while their infamous Carnival celebration was taking place.

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 “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″ textured 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.

Painting and Photographing in Oia, Greece with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

Greece Art Trek:  Oia, Santorini
SOLD • 9″ x 12″ textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

Just Sold! With so much beautiful scenery, it was hard to decide on a subject, but a couple of the painters chose this iconic view of the windmills and bleached architecture contrasted against the cobalt blue skies and waters below. Meanwhile the photographers climbed every nook and cranny in town in search for the perfect shot, and others chose to shop or relax with a snack, soaking in the gorgeous view over the caldera.

One of my student’s easels with their completed painting overlooking Oia in the background.

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.
