This conjures up a great feeling of freedom and space Teresa. Love the movement.

Good one Tessa, give me skis and snow and I’m there (in my dreams)!

This is obviously your dream Tessa. My balance isn’t good enough to try it, but it looks very exciting!

Tessa, you're very good at getting the balance/stance of the figure just right, as in this one. The weight bearing is crucial and the sense of going downhill is perfect.

Really good Tessa!

I love this Tessa, it makes you feel like having a go.

Thank you Carole, freedom and space seem to go together don’t they, especially at the moment. Katy, skis and snow!? Dreams only for me too, and Linda, I have two new(ish) knees so yes in my imagination only. Thank you Marjorie, I love figure drawing, and trying to get the correct sense of motion, so very glad you see that. Diane and Denise, many thanks also. Denise, feel free to have a go, I’ll just watch! 🤣

Super ... those were the days!

Great idea Tessa, love it!

Full of movement and speed, Tessa. Well done.

Thanks again Mia, Alan and Heather, always grateful for your kind and positive comments.

I feel I’m there Tessa. Clever stuff.
