Painting has always made me happy. Enjoying being Volunteer Artist-in-Residence at Arlington Court National Trust Devon
A real life Downton Abbey. Though I loved the dining room table service, not sure I could eat my meal with all the ancestors looking down on me. :-D I've never seen art materials put out so people can make their own unique souvenier. Wish more places did that.
Nice these places are preserved for all to enjoy visiting isn't it...I agree, more places should encourage people to do an artwork souvenier :-)
I love that they encourage people to do their own plein air paintings....and the frame on the easel made me smile.
There were a few of those frame on easels, they were their own artwork with the view, lol :-)
Lovely property, beautiful gardens.
Glad you enjoyed seeing it Christine :-)
What a lovely place to visit and if you are so inspired, you're given the chance to express it -- What a brilliant idea and example for other places like this to follow!
Yes, we thought it was a great idea with the art supplies.
The frame on the easel made me smile too! :)
That made us smile too :-)
What a fascinating place, there's something for everybody to enjoy! I noticed that organ in the living room too :)
It was fascinating....each National Trust property has something unique, so pleased we visit them.
Beautiful place, and the gardens are gorgeous as well. Great idea, to encourage people to create art inspired by the beautiful landscape, I love that!
It's lovely that these National Trust places encourage an interaction with visitors these days, makes the visits so worth while.
