A little tip create an account and sign in first otherwise the video stops and asks you to do so before continuing.
The buffering is a little slow but it could be that I was watching it at peak time.
The still life painting is by Carl Dobsky an artist from San Francisco and the first painter featured in the video. In one clip you can see he has binoculars in his studio and to be honest I've been thinking of using a small pair for Life Drawing, I think I definitely will now.
