    Biography
    AMANDA HYATT is an artist, writer and educator. Her painting style is best described as alla prima tonal
    impressionism. Her paintings place great emphasis on light and mood, rather than color. As an impressionist, she
    makes maximum impact with minimum brushstrokes and believes in spontaneity of brushstrokes and a reduction of
    detail. Amanda pushes the boundaries of watercolor and strives to make each painting a 'piece of art' rather than
    'just a painting'. She also paints in her second preferred medium of oils and has painted requested portraits of
    notable Australians. Her highly collectable paintings are found in Europe, the UK, China and the USA.

    Amanda has been a professional watercolor artist for 35 years, dedicating her vocation to art rather than the
    inorganic and physical chemistry in which she was awarded a BSc (hons). She has had over 35 solo exhibitions,
    with international exhibitions in New York and China and is renowned internationally as a 'Master of Watercolor'.
    Amanda has also been described as one of seven 'International Masters of En Plein Air Painting' and a 'leading
    international teacher of watercolor'. Her recognition has resulted in her being in high demand as a teacher resulting
    in workshops and 'Painting holidays' in Australia, but now primarily overseas in locations such as Antarctica, South
    America, United Kingdom and Europe. Amanda will make her US workshop debut with Art in the Mountains in
    Bend, Oregon.

    Amanda has won many prizes including the Camberwell Rotary Art Show Gold Medal (Australia) as judged by Sir
    William Dargie (1992), plus 10 other major Australian awards including the prestigious Alice Bale, Kenneth Jack and
    Gordon Moffat awards in addition to the Norman Kaye "Artist of the Year Award" at the Victorian Artists Society.
    She has conducted numerous painting demonstrations in Australia and internationally. She is a long term member of
    both the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society, The Australian Watercolour Institute and the Watercolour Society of
    Victoria. She has judged many art shows including the prestigious Australian Camberwell Rotary Art Show.

    Amanda's internationally unique painting style and interpretation of subjects is described in her DVDs, publications
    and website. Amanda has numerous teaching DVDs including those by the English company 'APV Films', a best-
    selling book "Watercolour: Tonal Impressionism" and has written over 50 articles for leading art magazines such as
    the Artist (UK), L;Art de L'Aquarelle and Pratique des Arts (France), Flashart (USA), International Artist and
    Australian Artist. Her work is represented in Australia and internationally and has just been selected as on of the
    seven masters of watercolour to feature on the cover of Baohon "The Masters Choice" Artist Watercolour Paper.
    Class Outline: This watercolor course is about learning how to paint 'alla Prima, realist, impressionist, tonal
    watercolor's.
    Alla Prima means putting on the paint with confidence and no deliberation.
    Realist means painting from photos or en plein air, which we will do both to keep the painting real rather than
    abstract.
    Impressions means maximum impact with minimum brushwork.
    Tonal means that capturing the light is much more important than the color.
    Amanda will give two demonstrations each day and then you will paint while she spends time helping each individual
    student with their work. At the end of the course you will be exhilarated having experienced a 'no rules, only handy
    hints'  method to tackling watercolor in a fresh, loose and new exciting way.
    Her subject matter will include landscapes, seascapes, street scenes, still life, figurative work and en plein air work.
    Be prepared to experience freedom and renewed motivation with your art.
