Join Penny German, associate member of the RBSA, for this wonderful opportunity to paint en plein air, in the beautiful private gardens of Springfield House, Broadway. The roses and other blooms will be at their fabulous best at this time of year in this stunning location.

The workshop will begin with Penny giving a brief talk about outdoor painting, followed by a demonstration of painting in the garden. Participants will then find their own spot to paint autonomously whilst Penny circulates offering help and advice where required. There will also be an option to paint a still life of the beautiful flowers from the garden.

Penny exhibits regularly with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries and she is a regular contributor to The Artist Magazine.

Ticket price £90
Limited to 13 places (Maximum purchase of 2 per person)
