I was lucky enough to get to take part in 'Colour, Line and Division', a five day advanced painting course at West Dean two weeks ago. The course was held at West Dean College, which is in an amazing part of the Sussex downs, not far from Goodwood Racecourse. With high temperatures we had to work outside as the heat was too much in the studios.
The week was a fabulous one, I learnt a great deal from our extremely enthusiastic and amazingly knowledgeable Matthew Collings. I came away from the week inspired and enthused by such energy from him and the group I was with and went straight into the studio to enjoy the delicious and tactile world of paint again, this time with slightly fresher eyes and hoping to take bigger risks with painting.
