You’ve done so well!
You know, other people have dropped out.
And missed out.
But you haven’t.
It’s a good idea to look back and consider the ground you’ve covered …
#1 – no rushing, calm your mind: your painted glass may last 100 years or more, so take as long as you need to prepare the paint, load the brush and paint a line or shadow
#2 – a well-shaped tracing brush often looks like a rolled-up umbrella
#3 – hold your badger firmly (not weakly), and use it with conviction (even if you use it carefully)
#4 – you won’t paint a decent undercoat unless you take the time to give your hake a proper shape
