Daily Painting, Beach Scene, "Reel Her In" 8x10" Palette Knife Painting

This is the second time I have painted this scene.  The first time, several years ago, was a small 5x7.  I wanted to paint it larger, but couldn't find the image on my computer.  When I finally found it...I didn't have the size canvas I wanted to use (14x18) so, because I was frustrated I did it on the 8x10.

I suppose this means I will repeat the process again at some unknown point in the future.

This time I painted with a palette knife and brush.  I like the texture that can be achieved with the knife.  I also have added some great "ocean" colors to my palette.

Who knows....maybe the next time I paint this scene, it will be an abstract!

This is the first painting.  Do you have a  preference? 

"Living on the Edge" Colorado Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

Balancing on the edge of a cliff, this pair of aspen trees stands tall, united against the elements. Painted with palette knife and extremely thick oil paint, this painting captures the textures of the rocky mountain, fall foliage and their natural surroundings.

E-mail Niki Gulley for more information on her palette knife aspen tree and contemporary landscape paintings.

I've been telling you for at least two months now to keep your eyes peeled for my first book, right?  So finally it's here. This book is a collection of posts from my blog from the years 2011-2014. There are a few in the mix that are older because they were worthy of print publishing. Of over 550 paintings, 76 of them and their corresponding writings were carefully chosen to represent the best work of my formative years as a palette knife painter. Whether readers are fellow artists or devoted admirers, my goal was to share personal experiences and the path that has led to a new level of painting ability and spiritual well being.

Abstract Mixed Media, "All In A Row" 4x12" Original

I find myself being drawn more and more to the abstract and mixed media area of art.  In May I attended a wonderful workshop given by Carol Nelson.  She fueled my desire with her creative techniques and materials.  Since then, I have been trying to develop my own techniques.

Purchase here
99.95 + shipping
I included some of Carol's techniques and some of my own.  I like this piece in both a horizontal format or in a vertical format.  The sides are painted and do not require framing.

It can hang on the wall or sit on a shelf.  It has just a touch of gold leaf to capture the light.
I have to admit.......I really enjoyed creating this.
