Amanda Gordon is a watercolour artist who specialises in British wildlife. Largely self taught, she began her art career undertaking pet portraiture in pencil. Before developing the loose, fluid style in painting that she now uses to portray her subjects. Fine Art to its full with Amanda Gordon Originals.
She finds that the unpredictable and spontaneous nature of watercolour is perfect. This enables her to capture the movement and wild transient beauty of the wildlife she studies. It is not only the animal itself she is seeking to portray, but the intense emotional response she experiences when she sees it in its natural environment.
As a child Amanda watched the deer that came down from the hills into her garden near Edinburgh. She would spend hours watching the hares boxing in the fields around her home in winter. Now she lives on the Hampshire/Surrey border and works from her garden studio. As a result, she is painting the wildlife that she sees there; foxes, kingfishers, herons and even roe deer.
