This smaller panel of flowering Laburnum was designed and colored as a small scale study for the larger Laburnum/Purple Hydrangea panel featured on my home page. By doing this, I was able to try various new colors in my sheet glass and see how they worked together. I also plated the background sky to color phase from a hot reddish pantone orange/vermillion to an azure blue but decided I would utilize a different color phasing in the larger panel. I thought the yellow I used for the clusters of laburnum turned out just right and used it in the larger panel. I also decided I had used too much color in the beveling and used a quite a bit less in the bevelwork in the larger panel.
