    It's difficult writing about a visual/practical medium.

    It's worth remembering that all painting courses will include some theory - so the usual advice applies

    Talk about why you want to do your degree (the path you've taken that has brought you to applying).

    Talk about work you've done so far that you've enjoyed and what you got from it (and what you'd do differently)

    Talk about techniques you've explored and/or artists that have influenced your work.

    Talk about what you're looking forward to covering in more detail in your degree.
