An original acrylic painting on double thick canvas by local artist Amanda Wells.

‘In my early experimentation with acrylics and canvas, I played around with unusual colours, and against all odds found this piece really worked. The confident sketch beneath shines through the paint, which almost looks like light bouncing off the figure.’

This piece is 8″x10″, and is on a pine frame, signed on the back.

This piece was lovingly created by

Amanda Wells (Fitzroy)


Amanda Wells is a visual artist who practices mainly in watercolour, oils and acrylics. A South Aussie by birth, she rediscovered art whilst living in Brisbane, and now lives in Western Melbourne where she paints people, animals, plants and ideas. Amanda Wells was born in South Australia, having lived and studied in the Clare Valley, the Barossa Valley, and Adelaide. Amanda has four tertiary degrees in the social sciences and humanities, which inform her work and view of the world in general. Amanda rediscovered her love of art whilst living in Brisbane, and has been developing her skills and style ever since. Now based in Western Melbourne, she has been working primarily in watercolours, and painting a range of subjects from people to animals to plants. Her favourite subject to paint is still the human face, and there is usually at least one portrait project happening in the background in her studio (or at least in Amanda's brain).
