Bit o’ Honey ~ the little things that please

The little things that please . . .

Tree of Life ~ pt. 5

with 2 comments

With the composition set down in my previous sketch I felt free to loosen up the lines as I went along with this draft.  I left visible pencil marks to encourage this play when I begin my glass work.  I’ll be using a copper foil technique, which works well with organic shapes.  The less rigid I am following lines while cutting glass, the more interesting the end result.  After so many challenges sort forth by the committee, I’m pleased with how I’ve implement their ideas .


I hope this will be the last sketch . . .


And the last watercolor!


The next big challenge will be my choice and use of glass.  The fun has just begun!

I meet once more with the committee after the July 4 holiday.   Stay tuned.


Now, to clean my studio . . .

  1. Your tree is wonderful! I haven’t read your archives yet but I’m assuming you do stained glass work? I have a site here at WordPress that I started a few days ago.
