Thank you so much for coming down to Christchurch and putting on a fabulous watercolour abstract class. I was a little anxious beforehand as I'm a private artist but I relaxed immediately and immensely enjoyed it. Sam welcomed me so warmly, and you were so vivacious, and funny, and encouraging that I forgot to be anxious. You were very informative, with lots of inside artist tips, and helpful with the artistic creative process. I learnt some new stuff, and also got some things that I already knew reinforced. I loved meeting you, and hearing everything you had to say, and watching your demonstrations. Your artwork is awesome, and I feel lucky to have had a chance to learn with you.

I admire your work and your obvious love of watercolour and the approach you give to your students. It was challenging and exciting to do en plein air for the first time.  I've come home with an understanding of how to go ahead, from the concept, to the sketch and finally the painting. I so appreciate it. I had some lovely comments re my chimneys. We had so much fun expanding our abstract brains with all the ideas you gave us. Already 1 more painting under my belt. So inspired. I bought lots of goodies at the Drawing Room to go forward with. You are very patient and kind, answering all our questions and giving us fabulous demonstrations so we can better understand the direction to be taken. Have already been practicing some of the wonderful ideas. 

Just wanted to say how fantastic the workshop was. Amanda Is a great teacher and so encouraging. I've done 3 abstract paintings so far thanks to her and have never tried this medium before.

Thank you so much for the inspiring and fun two days workshop at the drawing room in Christchurch recently. It was great to get your professional tips and advice on how to think out, plan and paint an abstract. I’ve never done abstracts before and was really pleased with my first go. Have done more since!  Thanks again for your knowledge and patience when teaching us.
