New Iceland Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

9" x 12" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

For our next Iceland adventure, you guessed it - we visited another waterfall! Today the wind was picking up again, so we aimed the car towards the falls and I painted from the front seat while the wind rocked our car and Scott to sleep. Meanwhile, I set out to capture the gorgeous falls with all of their power and glory. Using diagonal strokes again to capture the energy and strength of the cascades, I also wanted to show the mountains they were tumbling over and a sliver of the river in the distance as the water flowed onward. Dramatic clouds drift by, adding to the rhythm and emotion of this special place.
