Amanda Cooper Landscapes, Houses and Gardens in watercolour

My profile

Hello and Welcome to my website. Although I do enjoy pastels from time to time, water colour landscape is my preferred medium. Inspiration comes from the wilder countryside around home with it's shifting light and challenging weather. Other ideas come from my travels as tour leader to far flung places such as Myanmar and Georgia when there is a spare moment.  This year closer to home, my own garden is the theme. When I am not teaching I work on commission doing portraits of houses and their surroundings which dovetails neatly into "artists impressions" for a variety of local estate agents. You'd be amazed what a little licence and some old fashioned pen and wash skills can do. All work can be viewed and you can also email me direct from this site. As an additional extra my little art book Sienna or Madder is reviewed here by Artist magazine and for sale under the BLOG tab.
