Gloucestershire - Stroud

Episode 2 of 6

Clare Balding meets the Walking the Land group of artists for a walk in the beautiful hills surrounding Stroud, walking up onto Rodborough Common.

Clare Balding explores the joys of group walking.

Clare walks with artists Richard and Tom Keating, and Kel Portman. They all lead guided walks in the area, encouraging their companions to enjoy the landscape by drawing and painting what they see as they go. The artists use their knowledge of the area and of creating art to assist the other walkers in the work, suggest different techniques or views and to generally encourage and support.
