Alan Wells

Portsmouth, Staffordshire

I have been painting for more than 30 years and a professional artist, with the luxury of my own studio in the garden!

I am a photographic realist artist. I seek to bring as much detail and depth to my paintings and drawings as possible.

My main areas of work are portraits, animals, historical and fantasy. Pastels, oils, acrylics and graphite are my main mediums, but I never let the opportunity to pass to experiment with new or other mediums to present a painting in a different light, or to seek to enhance my subject.

I run weekly art classes and weekend workshops in my studio in Portsmouth covering  oils, acrylics, pastels and graphite.  If you are interested in developing or enhancing your skills in these areas,  please see my website for details or ring me on 02392 388449.

I also undertake portrait and pet commisions. Please see my website for examples of my work and please feel free to ring me to discuss, if you are interested in a commission .



I won an award for the best painting voted by the publicat Salisburys Small painting competition in 2008 I won the Simon Combes Award 2010 at TAWSI for 'Trouble Waters'. Please see below link to web-page.
