Sketchbooks are an essential part of Amanda's working process, they are a visual diary of those special days spent walking and observing the Cornish footpaths, capturing moments along her journey, they are her connection to the landscape and often, from one sketch a series of paintings will grow.


Using  mix-media of oils, acrylic inks, pastels, watercolours and charcoal, working  quickly, Amanda often paints several pictures at a time, building colour and texture to bring a sketch to life.    There is sense of freedom, with no preconceived ideas,  a painting may work or fail and it is a wonderful journey to see them develop.
