New "Cascades" from Iceland by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

12" x 9” textured oil painting on canvas panel

Iceland Art Trek: Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop led by Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Day 4 - Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

On Day 4 of our Iceland Art Trek, Scott drove the photographers to visit the glacier lagoons. Meanwhile, I stayed back and painted on the beautiful grounds of our hotel. The waterfalls in Iceland are incredible and practically around every turn – crashing through cliffs, splashing over rocks, bubbling downstream and trickling out to sea. This one was actually next to our hotel and screamed that I had to capture it! I chose to paint this scene with loose, expressive brushstrokes to convey the movement and energy of the rushing water and the texture in the cliffs and rocks. Also, adding to the joy of the moment, summer's last lupines dot the landscape with brilliant hues of blues.

Day 3 - Vatnajokull National Park / Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

The next morning, we stopped by to photograph more puffins on our way out of town. Because you can never have enough puffin watching! Then we gathered up our merry band of trekkers and headed further east to the Vatnjokull National Park. Here we had several hours to hike and photograph the exotic scenery and another amazing waterfall before our final drive to our hotel located near the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon.

New "Black Beach Sunrise" Palette Knife Painting of Iceland by Niki Gulley

 

"Black Beach Sunrise" ©2021 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 5" x 7” textured oil painting

Day 2 - Black Beach and Puffins

On our second morning in Iceland, we got up early to capture adorable puffins diving off cliffs to capture their morning's catch. After that we visited the Black Beach where the rock formations and caves were formed out of black lava. Giant basalt columns stacked one right after the other dominate the shoreline. I wanted to capture their texture and the peaceful glow as the morning sun rose above the horizon in this little painting.

Iceland Art Trek: Day 2 - Kvernofoss

Next up on our Iceland itinerary was visiting another waterfall. My husband and I love waterfalls, and it feels like Iceland has one even better than the next around every bend! So, needless to say we were pretty happy painting and photographing all of the falls the country had to offer. This cascade that we visited today is smaller in stature but no less impressive. It tumbles down over the rocky mountain and empties into a river carving its way through the lush, craggy valley below. I wanted to capture not only the falls, but the water’s path as it flows and snakes its way around the towering rock formations. Other than the midges that would swarm when the sun came out, it was a perfect afternoon!

Iceland Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

"Falling Water III", Iceland ©2021 Niki Gulley
9" x 12” textured oil painting

Iceland Art Trek: Day 1 - Seljalandsfoss

For our next Iceland adventure, you guessed it - we visited another waterfall! This one is so magical and unique since you can walk behind the falls and peer out the cave as the water rushes from above crashing into the reservoir below. I set out to capture the gorgeous falls with all of their power and glory. Trying to find a dry enough place to paint where the mist wouldn't keep erasing my drawing was a challenge, but on my third try, I finally found a good spot! Trying to time it so that I could capture the sun as it was setting in the distance just added to the enchanting feel of this location. I hope you, too, can feel these cascades power and beauty.

Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Landscape Palette Knife Original Oil Painting by Sheri Jones

Bougainvillea
10x8 oil on linen panel
Sold

I created this during the Hidden Garden tour this past weekend. It sold right off the easel. I love it that happens.  The house I painted at was absolutely beautiful and highlighted with these huge pots of bougainvillea.  They were 40 years old and were glowing in the afternoon sun.  The owners move them inside the garage during the winter.  That's the only way to survive and get so large.

Waterfall Palette Knife Painting from Iceland by Niki Gulley

Iceland Art Trek: Day 1 - Skogafoss

First stop on our Iceland Art Trek this year was the Skogafoss waterfall. Surrounded by lush grassy mountains, this cascade surges downward with such force and power! Today I set up my easel to capture the energy and flow of the water. Creating strokes in diagonal sweeping shapes to enhance that feeling of movement and rhythm, I hope you, too, can hear the flowing water's music and feel the gentle spray from its mist.
