It isn’t often I throw larger forms like this but it does feel good! I certainly need more practice but it’s such an enjoyable process nonetheless. I hope you enjoy this weeks video, and found the cross-sections and diagrams useful! Let me know in the comments below and as always, thanks for watching!
(Apologies for the subtle audio change towards the end! I recorded the end of the voiceover in the morning and my vocal cords are a little more gravelly then)
