Willow City Loop Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

Willow City Loop ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
I painted this piece on location along the Willow City Loop in Fredericksburg, TX. It was too early for bluebonnets, so I was searching for a beautiful scene that included some bright colors to break up all of the green in the landscape. These interesting red rocks were calling my name! Combine their interesting hues and shapes along with the dreamy morning light, and I thought this composition would make a perfect painting. A sliver of the road on the left reminds you to slow down and enjoy the journey, too.

“Texas Trails” Bluebonnet Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Texas Trails” ©2020 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
 
I painted “Texas Trails” this spring while visiting Austin and the surrounding area. This might have been one of the best years for the bluebonnets and wildflowers. The explosion of color along roadsides was incredible! This morning started out slightly overcast, and the sun kept peeking in and out of the clouds, creating a soft glow to everything it touched. I wanted to capture that magical light illuminating your journey on this Texas walking trail lined by bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of springtime with the wildflowers abloom in the Texas Hill Country!

“Lone Star Blooms” Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Lone Star Blooms” ©2020 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
In this painting, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our bluebonnets and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of our berms in the Texas Hill Country. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms slightly abstract plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

“Red Carpet Ride” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
In this Texas wildflower series, I wanted to capture the excitement and energy felt during a beautiful day in April when the Indian Paintbrush, bluebonnets and wildflowers are painting the horizon in gorgeous shades of reds and blues. Driving through the Hill Country late one day, the sun was just starting to drop, casting this golden hue across all of the wildflowers it hit causing them to glow and dance in the warm light. Deep, long shadows and the abundance of rich crimson Indian Paintbrush added to the drama and magic of the moment. Focusing on the patterns of color and contrast of lights and darks, I wanted to communicate the emotion felt being surrounded by all of this Texas beauty.
