A magical Autumn Lakeland art holiday at Rydal Hall!

Everyone flowing with creativity at Rydal Falls! Superb mixed media paintings created this Autumn in the inspirational Rydal Hall in the heart of the Lake District

What a great art holiday we have all just had at Rydal Hall near Ambleside in The Lake District this October.

The glorious Autumn sunshine brought all the colours out during our great art week - perfect for all our outdoor painting adventures together at Rydal Falls (Wordsworth's favourite Lake District waterfall) and at Rydal Water itself close to Rydal Hall.
Is that really a 'waterfall' you are painting there Robert? Fun and laughter whilst painting at Rydal Hall - just how we like all like it!
Nitram charcoal takes centre stage. Essential tools of the trade for my mixed media black and white drawings and paintings - every time!
 Mixing versatile Nitram Charcoal (from Canada) with other black and white media being 'right there amongst it' by the tumbling waters of Rydal Beck on the Rydal Hall estate was a magical and wonderful painting experience for all.

The wonderful inspirational setting at Rydal Hall - Rydal Falls. No wonder Wordsworth loved it so much!
The wonderful Rydal Water once again was a true creative inspiration for everyone again with superb pastel paintings being created by everyone at by the edge of the lake in the Autumn sunshine.
