I'm doing the how to Read Paintings course and enjoying it very much. It is well structured and has helpful feedback and it is very interesting being able to see paintings in different genres and seeing how artists developed. I am about half way through but am having to stop for a while as I am very shortly moving house (after 38 years in the same house and having been widowed) so all my energies are taken up with deciding what is essential for me to have in a 2 bedroom flat and what, from my 4 bed house, can be sold, given away or thrown out.
This means that further development of my skills in reading paintings will have to wait, but I am very much looking forward to being able to pick it up again. In the meantime I have learnt enough to be able to apply this knowledge to getting much more out of looking at paintings in local galleries etc.
