Waterfall Palette Knife Painting from Iceland by Niki Gulley


"Falling Water II", Skógafoss, Iceland ©2021 Niki Gulley
12" x 16” textured oil painting

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.
