Amanda Penrose Hart started painting outdoors when she could no longer afford to keep her Sydney studio.
‘It was OMG this studio has to go! And it was like having my hand cut off. But then I started painting in my car. I would drive somewhere, and put my bum down somewhere in the shade and just look. Slowly it took over.’
‘Now I can just pick up my kit and go anywhere – to France or out bush. It is super portable and I have learnt how to find shade … and bad food,’ said Penrose Hart.
