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.
