Amanda Hyatt

Amanda Hyatt has been a professional watercolour artist for 35 years. She has had 35 solo exhibitions, with international exhibitions in New York and China where she was described as a ‘Master of Watercolour’ and an ‘International Master of ‘En Plein Air Painting’. For the past twelve years Amanda has taken Travelrite International painting workshop holidays to places such as Antarctica, Europe (France, Italy and Mediterranean Cruises) and the UK. She has won most major Australian Watercolour awards and is a long-term member of both the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society and the Australian Watercolour Institute. Amanda has five teaching DVDs and her book Watercolour Tonal Impressionism is a best seller. Amanda is passionate about the art of watercolour and pushes the boundaries herself in discovering how to make a ‘piece of art’ rather than ‘just a painting’.

Twelve days of spectacular painting in Far North Queensland. Explore and paint the lush tropics, visit the ancient Daintree Rainforest and discover the remote, unspoilt beauty of Cape York Peninsula. The workshop starts in Cairns, the heart of Tropical North Queensland, a vibrant city that blends a laid back tropical sensibility with a buzzing multicultural lifestyle. We then travel to the frontier town of Cooktown followed by the beauty of Port Douglas.
