Painting in oils in the gardens of Snowshill Manor ‘Capturing the essence of a garden

Join Penny German, associate member of the RBSA for this wonderful opportunity to paint en Plein Air, in the orchard and gardens of National Trust Property Snowshill Manor & Gardens.

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.

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

This workshop will be based in the gardens and orchard of National Trust property, Snowshill Manor, just a 5 min drive outside Broadway village.
Snowshill Manor is a beautiful Cotswold Stone manor house built c1550 and restored by architect, artist, poet and craftsman Charles Paget Wade.
The terraced gardens here are the perfect place to unwind and to explore hidden vistas and quiet corners to enjoy your painting.
This year the gardens are celebrating 100 year since they were re-designed by Charles Wade.
