We’re looking to inspire you to get artistic at home by picking up a paintbrush, pencil…or whatever you have to hand, to have a go at re-creating some striking countryside images from the Countryfile archive.

It doesn’t matter what your artistic ability is, or preferred style or medium – we’re encouraging anyone and everyone to join in to help celebrate the beauty of the countryside.

To help inspire you, we’ll be inviting guest artists to create pieces too, and they’ll be recording their process and offering hints and tips along the way. However, you might simply want to just sit back and enjoy a bit of artistic escapism as you watch along.
