Waterperry Gardens provides a vast choice of subject matter and visual stimuli for both figurative and abstract work. As well as sheer light and space, natural and man-made features include ornamental water features and the River Thame, Palladian and vernacular architecture, parkland, formal and informal gardens, clipped yew, the orangerie, the chapel, garden centre plants, wooded spaces, distant hills, and figures of other visitors. The workshop is studio-based, with outside work in the gardens and estate. In bad weather, the tutor will provide either imagery from the gardens or still life material to work from.
