The Château de la Motte Husson and others which have been featured on C4, as well as the Chateau owners, are an artist’s dream.  So we decided to feature a few works which these talented people have created for us all to enjoy – and perhaps take some inspiration from?

The Claire Warbeck Gallery : Claire, believe it not is a “novice” artist who has wowed us with her lifelike portraits of Dick, Angel, Michael Petherick and Stephanie Jarvis ready for the masked ball!  She discovered her hidden talent during lockdown.  Read her story


Ann Hyde : “Dandelion Wine to LaLande” oil on canvas 30 x 30 cms inspired by a photograph by volunteer Selmar Duin who kindly granted Ann permission to use it.  See Ann’s FB page 

Sheila Roper : “A Game of Croquet at Chateau de Lalande?  Or perhaps a Picnic at Château de la Motte Husson?  Talented artist Sheila Roper was busy painting during lockdown.  Read more about Sheila.

Sir Paul : The inspirational artist who did not even recognise his own talents!  Paul is an ambassador for the Lily Foundation and collaborates with TV Royalty (Dick and Angel) as well as THE Royal Family.  Read his story.

Frank Walters : A talented watercolour artist and instructor.  Frank is holding [Covid dependant] a week long CLARET & COLOUR RETREAT – 8TH TO 13TH OCTOBER at Chateau Fengari.  He also offers zoom lessonsVideo

We’ll keep them coming as and when received.  Enjoy and get those paint brushes out!
