A 5" x 7" fused glass panel that provides an introduction to drawing with a painterly approach using 90 COE glass powders and frit. The tree trunk and branches are drawn freehand using heavy cardstock to move the glass powder into the correct shapes. Various colors and sizes of frit complete the scene.
