Autumn Mixed Painting
November 3rd - 8th 2013
This holiday combines Oil and Acrylic with Water Colour painting and is a great opportunity to see how different media tackle the same subjects and to try different media for oneself. There is always scope for painters to pursue their individual ideas in painting.
Stephensons Ground - Whole day out to a traditional Lake District farmhouse situated high in the Fells with great subjects to paint both inside and out. Lunch of soup and sandwiches will be provided in the local pub.
Still Life - based on the work of the Italian artist Georgio Morandi (1890-1964) who who spent a good deal of his artistic life painting still life comprising a variety of bottles, jugs and kitchen items as his subject, using subdued colour which gave the subjects a certain presence. Preliminary exercises in pencil or charcoal followed by the Still life work in the medium of your choice.
Paintings - based on sketches made on our trips out, particularly studying paintings and photos of Lake District farms and cottages, which are a distinctive feature of this landscape, with a view to making a loose painting of the subject.
Mixed Media – painting using sand, polyfilla, pure pigment etc, to make a textured painting inspired by copies of prehistoric cave paintings or something of your own choice.
Half day to Wray Castle a mock Gothic castle on the western shore of Windermere, now owned by the National Trust, with grounds going down to the Lake. Plenty to draw and sketch.

Audrey Jerram is very experienced in teaching painters. She and her husband, Peter, ran a guest house for painters in Hartsop, near Ullswater, and so is well acquainted with the Lake District. They now run a similar establishment in Wiltshire. Audrey paints in predominately in acrylics and water colour, but uses other media from time to time.
Her London exhibitions include one person shows in Foyles Art Gallery, Queensland House Gallery, and the Loggia Gallery. In 1994 she had an exhibition at the Collins Street Gallery in Melbourne, and as a result was commissioned to paint in the Gold Fields of Western Australia in 1997, followed by another exhibition in Melbourne. Her paintings are in private collections in numerous countries.
