The Wednesday night sailboat races are a magical scene to paint. The sails are  illuminated as the setting sun warms the evening sky.

Getting to Know Stephanie

Stephanie Amato is a New Yorker who now resides in Atlanta. She creates her impressionist paintings either on location or in her home studio, which she designed and built to have 15-foot cathedral windows. “Whether painting in my studio or outdoor on location, the first thing I consider is the composition and design of the piece... I use a handheld viewfinder to decide the composition and the size and shape of the canvas,” Stephanie says. “I will then roughly sketch in the scene and start to apply the darkest and lightest values to the piece.” She prefers to work from life, so many of her larger pieces are created from plein air or alla prima studies.
