Botanical art and drawing British wildlife from the garden and local countryside.
The garden attracts a variety of bees - often Honey Bees - but this was a particularly big, furry Bumblebee - a Buff-tailed Bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) - a perfect choice for some quick sketching, a few photographs and a couple watercolour painting compositions.
The bee was drawn in pencil using previous reference sketches and photographs and the bluebell was a life study from the garden.

The image of this beautiful creature was so real and familiar yet full of mystery!
