A new exhibition of paintings by Lake District artist Amanda Watson is open throughout May and June at the School Room tea shop at Rydal Hall near Ambleside.
Winter Light is a collection of Amanda’s work that reflects her fascination with the harshest season of the year.
Winter, she says, is such a varied season: “It can give us rain, snow, hail, high winds and sun. It’s the sheer diversity and unpredictability of the weather at this time of year which interests me. How the land and sea transforms with changing weather conditions and what effect differing light has on terrain and water is something I find fascinating.”
The paintings in this small exhibition reflect that interest and diversity.
Rydal Hall Tea Shop is open daily from 10am – 5pm daily.
Amanda will also be on site in the Bar Gallery with more paintings over the bank holiday weekend, from May 22-25.
