“Capture the beauty of the stunning Kimberley region of WA”

Amanda is an “alla prima” artist, painting “at the first go”. She is instinctive and aims to create an expressive effect directly, immediately and spontaneously, to “achieve the final look in one session”. This requires skilful manipulation of the brushes and the medium, working quickly. With 30 years’ experience she is a master of alla prima watercolour.

Amanda strives to create a sense of light and energy in her work which attracts the viewer via their immediate reaction to the play of tones, contrast of darks and lights, and her omission of unnecessary detail, making every brush stoke matter. She aims to continue this lineage by transmitting this knowledge to students via her teaching. A combination of sensuality and intellect characterise this artist.
