Plein Air Painting Workshop at the Dallas Arboretum with Niki Gulley

"Bamboo Forest," Dallas Arboretum ©2012 Niki Gulley
8" x 10" textured oil painting 

I created this little painting of the bamboo garden at the Arboretum last spring with palette knife and thick oil paint. It was so peaceful back there and cool from the shade, that it seemed like a perfect place to set up my easel. I liked how the warm light was trickling through the web of leaves and how it illuminated the dappled path into the distance.

If you, too, would like to paint outdoors, join me on Oct. 24th when I'll be teaching a Plein Air Painting workshop sponsored by the Dallas Arboretum. It will be a great introduction to painting outdoors for beginning artists, as well as an opportunity for advanced artists to enhance their skills.
