Watercolor "Mist on the Mountain" by Hawaii artist Arlene G. Woo

Mist on the Mountain received an award at the Hawaii Watercolor Society Members show 2017.  It was inspired by a cloudy day in Palolo Valley in Honolulu.  Some people have seen various images, but I only see the valley.

"Oak Alley" Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Oak Alley" ©2017 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 16" x 20" textured oil painting

Just Sold! I painted this colorful oak lined alleyway a couple of weeks ago on location at the Fort Worth Stock Yards. I was attracted to the contrast of light and shadows and the way the oaks lined up to lead you down this dappled path into the background Spanish archway, which was illuminated in glowing whites and yellows by the sun. The colors were duller than this and I wanted a warmer feeling to the scene since it was a chilly morning, so I enhanced the hues to create an uplifting backdrop full of color and energy. Utilizing thick paint and palette knife, I also created a lot of texture and movement with my strokes to add to the joyful feeling of painting on this beautiful morning.

Queen For The Day..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews


This is the completed demo I began last week for the Brenham Arts League here in Texas.

I possibly spent only 30 minutes on the actual demo as I had already done a longer one and time was short.

This image is on white velour paper.

The steps of this are below..

 I like to work a lot of negative painting into my background first, and the flower/s evolve as the painting progresses.

I did not pre draw to begin with, merely used 'VEILS' of pastel marks over the surface first to disturb the surface tension. 

After this I referred to my photo of a flower and sketched a little over these marks to give me a 'road map' of a flower so to speak.

I like movement in my works, and not sticking to a plan, just allowing the painting to tell me what it wants to do.

Here are the steps.
This image is a pastel on velour paper (unframed)
19.5" x 25.5" 
$550 plus S/H

Prints of this image are also available through Fine Art America:

Tuscan Vineyard Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

SOLD • 48" x 60" textured oil painting

I was recently commissioned to paint this vineyard scene set against miles of rolling hills dotted with grapevines and olive trees. Working from some of my plein air sketches, photographs, and personal memories from our trips to the area, I created this large textured oil painting with palette knives and tons of paint. Full of color and movement, I arranged the planted grapevines to lead your eye back to the Tuscan villa and then to the beautiful countryside beyond.

If you would like to come along on one of our upcoming Plein Air Painting / Photography Workshops to Tuscany, Italy in September or Cinque Terre / Lake Como, Italy in September visit ArtTreks.org for more information. We'd love to have you join us!

Sunflower Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, 14x18x.75" Oil SOLD

Last summer I visited Colorado and fell in love with the state.  The beauty is breath taking and I was trying to record it all on my camera.

Today's painting is a light hearted, laid back attempt to capture the wild sunflowers swaying in the breeze of the Colorado landscape.


 On a whim, I decided to paint over an old abstract painting, that carried lots of texture in specific areas.


That set the tone of the painting for me.  I stayed loose and free.



Much of the background is from the original painting.

I have a friend who burns her unsuccesful paintings at the end of the year.  I think that is a dangerous activity.  The fumes of the paint and mediums burning cannot be a good thing.  I much prefer to paint over a less successful painting and save a few dollars by reusing the canvas.  I am all about recycling.

Happy Painting!!

Majesty Sublime..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews



MAJESTY SUBLIME was started yesterday as a demo for the Brenham Arts League.

What a lovely audience I had, and it was a pleasure having such an eager participation for my demonstration. Thank you all so much.

I worked more on this today just to complete the image, although I had a good start at the demo, it was just not a 'home run' quite yet.

I think it's okay now, I will live with it a day or so and see how I feel.

                  This image is on Sennelier sanded paper (a dark green I believe) 

                                   It is unframed and measures 19.5" x 25.5"

                                                                $525 plus S/H


                           Prints are also available through my Fine Art America site..

Marsh Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, "North Florida Marsh" by Carol Schiff, 9x12" Landscape, SOLD

I recently spent a few days in Fernandina Beach and stumbled across one of their beautiful marshes.  I have always admired marshes and their beautiful colors which change with the seasons.

SOLD
 I like texture in many of my paintings and I always enjoy playing with a palette knife.


I also like to push color.  Elio Camacho is a master of pushing color.....check out his work here.
I was in Fernandina Beach to attend his workshop and I hope I was able to use some of his technique in this painting.  The workshop was fascinating and I have already signed for a follow-up early next spring.

Thanks for reading my blog today.

New "Floating Expressions" Series Aspen Tree Paintings by Niki Gulley

"Floating Expressions III" ©2017 Niki Gulley
24" x 24" textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting series, I wanted the focus to be on texture. Usually I paint with a lot of color, but I opted to use a limited palette on these pieces to really concentrate on the peeling bark of the aspen trees. Bordering on the edge of abstraction and the cusp of realism, Floating Expressions is loaded with layers and layers of paint, built up with thin glazes and then palette knife to create extreme dimension. Choosing to come in extremely close on the subject, I played around with various strokes and paint thicknesses to add depth and energy. At the end, I had to throw in a few of my signature strokes of color – a splash of gold, some touches of purple, and just a dab of fire-engine red for added excitement and unexpected color twists.

Landscape with Flowers, Cone flower painting, daily painting, small oil painting, 9x12" Oil SOLD

I was going through my reference photo files, looking for inspiration, when I found an image from several years ago.  It's funny how I can be totally unimpressed with an image, and then one day, WOW!  I just have to paint it.

SOLD



I tried to remember everything I learned at my workshop with Elio Camacho a few months ago.   I tried to concentrate on color relations and brushwork.
detail

 Another priority.....not overworking the piece.  I felt happy when I finished, usually a good sign

detail



A week later, I am still happy with it....an even better sign!  I hope you like it too.

Thanks for following my blog.
