Watercolour Landscape Painting in the Park

Celebrate the great outdoors with a watercolour landscape class in Petworth Park. We will be learning in the landscape to create a seasonal Plein air painting, drawing inspiration from the light and its changing, ephemeral qualities.

  • Booking essential

Be inspired to paint in the stunning surroundings of Petworth Park. Your expert tutor from Aspire Sussex will teach you how to prepare your paper, choose your brushes, compose a landscape, create a wash, select colours, and create elements such as shadows, highlights and texture to add depth to your work.

Workshops are running on Wednesday 13th July, Saturday 13th August and Wednesday 7th September, 10.30am – 1.30pm. Tickets are £55.
