New "Tranquility Imagined" of Scottish Heather by Niki Gulley

"Tranquility Imagined" ©2021 Niki Gulley
20" x 30” textured mixed media painting on 1.5" stretched canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

Traveling through Scotland is a feast for the eyes. They have such incredible landscapes, with everything from waterfalls that carve their way through mist shrouded vibrant green mountains to vast open areas covered with heather. This scene just grabbed me with it's myriad of colors creating patterns that flow into the distance with one lone house to break things up.

"Princess Gardens" in Edinburgh, Scotland Painting by Niki Gulley

"Princess Gardens" ©2021 Niki Gulley
12" x 9” textured oil painting

Scotland Art Trek – First Day: Edinburgh
Led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the first day of our plein air painting and photography trip to Scotland, we began our adventure in the Medieval capitol city of Edinburgh. Filled with energy, fascinating architecture and history, we were all struck by its uniqueness and beauty. While the photographers shot and explored the city, we set up our easels close to our hotel to paint the lovely Princess Gardens that run through the center of the city. I set out to capture the lush hydrangeas lining this intricate stairway with just a glimpse of the ferris wheel in the background while some of my students did the same and others set out to recreate the interesting architectural details of the buildings. That evening we all gathered for a delicious Michelin restaurant dinner and compared our stories from the day. With sunny skies and great company, our first day in Scotland turned out to be a great start to the trip!

"Ross Castle" from Killarney, Ireland by Niki Gulley

9" x 12" textured oil painting

Day 7:  Ireland ART TREK
Afternoon location: Ross Castle, Killarney
Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

On the last afternoon of our Ireland Art Trek, we visited Ross Castle. While the photographers explored the castle and grounds, the painters set up their easels to capture this majestic view of the castle and lake. With the possibility of rain approaching, the clouds were moving so fast that only a tiny patch of blue sky peeked through and we had to paint quickly. Afterwards, we enjoyed a peaceful boat tour of the lake and came back to our home base, to share our photos and paintings of our trip. What a great way to end a wonderful Art Trek with new friends.

New "Amarillo" Tuscan Garden Painting by Niki Gulley

 

"Amarillo" ©2021 Niki Gulley 
 12" x 16" textured oil painting on canvas panel
 
I loved this yellow wall that surrounded an amazing garden on one of our recent trips to Tuscany so much, that I just had to paint it. The golden tones of the aged stucco were made more vibrant as the shadows moved along its surface in the afternoon sun. The warmth that it gave off just beckons you to enter and enjoy this beautiful space.

New Tuscany Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

12" x 9" textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

Day 3, afternoon location – ART TREKS: TUSCANY
 with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

After we finished a delicious antipasto lunch of prosciuttos, local pecorino, and fresh fruits and vegetables, we headed into the hills for our afternoon painting location. Starting fairly late in the day, we timed it so that the light would be soft and golden as we were putting the finishing details on our paintings. For this painting, we focused in closer on one of the tuscan farmhouses, with just a suggestion of the peaks and valleys in the background. Between the quiet surroundings, the quintessential Tuscan vineyard behind us and the perfect weather conditions, this proved to be a very inspiring afternoon.

New "Perched on High" Palette Knife Painting from Tuscany by Niki Gulley

"Perched on High," Tuscany ©2021 Niki Gulley

16" x 20" textured oil painting on canvas panel

Painted during our Tuscany Foodie Trek that we lead, I had been admiring this view from the back of our villa that we stay at over the course of the week. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking with 360 degree views of rolling hills and valleys, dotted by olive groves and quintessential Tuscan farmhouses. In particular, I was attracted to this stone house with its window awning casting a diagonal shadow across its facade, nestled in between cypress, and the rolling countryside as a backdrop behind it. Painted late in the day, the sun was beginning to set creating gorgeous colors in the sky and casting a golden glow on everything it kissed in the foreground. May you be transported to the magic of Tuscany!

New "Rolling Shadows," Tuscany Palette Knife Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

 

"Rolling Shadows," Tuscany ©2021 Niki Gulley 
9" x 12" textured oil painting

Before my husband and I led our Tuscany Foodie Trek, we spent a couple of days capturing the gorgeous scenery on film and on canvas. I've always been attracted to this lone clump of cypress trees and on this day the clouds in the sky were so fascinating. Soft and voluminous and acting as the perfect backdrop behind the cypress grove, I had to capture it before they disappeared. I decided to have fun with the colors and strokes to add to the excitement and drama of the moment.

"Ruby Trail" Poppy Painting from Tuscany by Niki Gulley

  

Ruby Trail, Tuscany ©2021 Niki Gulley

24" x 24" textured mixed media on canvas

I loved how this trail of poppies pulled the eye up to the house sitting majestically on top of the hill. It was like a vein of red flowing to the heart, bringing with it joy and happiness. So that is how I want my painting to make you feel.

"Ruby Trail" is available through the Good Art Company Gallery, goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&zenid=417ih04llasuk7pl1h0qhj32k1.
