10. Barbara Nicholls

Another event at the Windermere Jetty Museum this weekend. Head down for a spectacular display of large-scale watercolours, reflecting the Lake District’s dramatic environment.

These watercolours emerge from a process of manipulating coloured pigment in large quantities of water. The pigments behave in a variety of ways; some gather in dark, opaque pools, others are translucent, lapping at the paper to form gentle tidal marks.

The exhibition is free with standard museum entry and is open from 10am till 5pm.
