Painted Escapes,Four Seasons Hotel,Hampshire

 Painted Escapes
The list of creative luminaries inspired by the English countryside is as infinite as the horizon that stretches over its rolling hills — from writers (hello, Jane Austen) to composers and of course, landscape painters like J.M.W. Turner and Thomas Gainsborough, who’ve immortalized its lush landscape.

Now, thanks to a tranquil new retreat at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire, you can add your own name to this artistic roll call.

This spring and fall, the historic Hotel is hosting exclusive watercolour painting seminars with Jean Haines, an acclaimed artist and author of How to Paint: Colour & Light in Watercolour. Taking seasonal inspiration from the surrounding countryside and picturesque village of Dogmersfield Park, Haines will give you one-on-one instruction in her unique technique: using colour, shadows and light without first touching pencil to paper.

Your “
Painted Escape” getaway includes four watercolour seminar sessions and two nights’ bed and breakfast at the restored Georgian manor. The spring session takes place from April 26 to 28 and the fall session begins November 1.

So pack your paintbrushes and palette, and get ready to unleash your inner artist at
Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire.
