A Container for Twelve Twigs

I chose to make the container for my twigs have qualities pertaining to the number twelve.
A hexagon is a shape with 6 sides. My container is a hexagon, separated into six parts, with two twigs in each section.
The hexagon represents a honey comb which is a container formed by nature.
The container is made of vellum, making the container somewhat transparent.

I drew this branch in about 20 minutes in the IARC studio. I think it is my most successful leaf drawing because of the shadow and movement shown.

Tomorrow is the critique for our
"A Place For a Leaf"
The "place" was to be constructed solely of one piece of white, 12.5" x 12.5", piece of paper. 
It was up to us students to decide how we wanted to interpret these limitations.
There were many different types of paper to choose from.
Velum, trash, or printer/copy paper is very thin and fragile while bristle board and water color are very thick, sturdy papers.
After many experimentations with the papers I ended up using a, 6" x 2", piece of sketch paper. 
Sketch paper is a good balance between the thin and thick papers. 
Generally, when thinking of a leaf I imagine a green shape that is unique to the type of leaf.
The reason why I made the "place" the way I did was because I wanted to show a closer, more intimate view of the leaf.
