Amanda’s paintings stunningly capture the fleeting nature of light and cloud, the familiarity that comes with knowing the terrain of a place. A simple walk turns into a sketch, a sketch into a painting, and a painting into the raw inspiration and powerful emotion that one feels when standing in the wilderness itself. Inspired by not just her memories, but by her personal experiences as well, each of Amanda’s paintings capture a different depth to the fells we all know and love.
“I am to be found outdoors when the weather is inclement, when the cloud is low, the light creates fleeting moments of pure magic."
- Amanda Watson
