This lesson is my 50th Lesson and as such a celebration is in order! It's called 'Celebration' and I can't believe I've filmed 50 lessons to date, it seems like such a milestone. If I was able to make the same dynamic movement as the model in this painting I would. I suspect I'd dislocate a hip on landing or hit my head on the ceiling, it certainly wouldn't look so grand, that you can be sure of!
This is a tricky one to get right. I recommend you take your time with the sketch to get the proportions correct and steady your hand on the panel surface or with a shot of whisky!
I hope you enjoy it. I did!
