Amanda usually paints with Windsor and Newton Cotman 111 brushes on Cotman fine grained water colour paper (at least 140lbs/ 300 gsm). As her paint brushes are so fine, she usually expects to wear out and so destroy a set during the production of every painting.
Amanda’s approach to a painting is unconventional. Images are always sketched out first and often using a set of grid lines for reference. She feels this is particularly relevant when painting boats as different boats possess particular design characteristics and she believes it is important to get these correct. Once the image is drafted out, she will then start from an area that “feels comfortable” and works out from this.
